I am a Postdoc at Amazon Research Berlin, where I work with Matthias Seeger and Cédric Archambeau. I am also part of the Ellis PostDoc Program. Prior to Amazon, I did my PhD at the University of Freiburg under the supervision of Frank Hutter.
My research focuses on the development of new algorithms that are able to automatically design and optimize machine learning models. Together with my collaborators from the University of Freiburg I won the ChaLearn AutoML Challenge in 2015.
The idea of this virtual seminar is to have every two weeks an informal talk by someone from the AutoML community for the AutoML community. You can find more information about future meetings on our website https://automl-seminars.github.io.
