About me

I am a first year ELLIS PhD student in Probabilistic Machine Learning at the University of Amsterdam supervised by Eric Nalisnick and Dan Zhang. Previously, I worked with Maja Rudolph on my Master’s thesis project at the Bosch Center for Artificial Intelligence.

I completed a Master’s in Statistics at Technical University Berlin and Humboldt University Berlin as well as a French engineering diploma at ENSAE. In my Bachelor’s, I studied Economics and Political Science at Humboldt University Berlin and the University of Munich.
