About me

I am an applied scientist at Amazon Research where I work on automated hyperparameter optimization and neural architecture search. Prior to Amazon, I was a PhD student at the University of Freiburg under the supervision of Frank Hutter.

During my PhD, I focused on Bayesian hyperparameter optimization, which led to several publications at major machine learning conferences, such as NeurIPS, ICML, ICLR, AISTATS. Together with my collaborators from the University of Freiburg I won the ChaLearn AutoML Challenge in 2015.
