Welcome! I am a research scientist at the Bosch Center for Artificial Intelligence (BCAI). Generally, I'm passionate about research driven by real-world applications, with a focus on machine learning and multi-agent systems. More specifically, my research focus is on
- machine intelligence: causal inference, time series analysis, general machine learning, mathematical logic,
- multi-agent systems: game theory and decision making in traffic and socioeconomic systems.
- Here's my CV as PDF, f you want to get a quick overview over my qualifications and experience.
- If you are interested in my research, have a look at my publications, slides, blog and software.
Started as a Research Scientist at Bosch Center for Artificial Intelligence:
After more than five nice years at the MPI for Intelligent Systems, in December I started a new position as Research Scientist at the Bosch Center for Artificial Intelligence (BCAI). I’m looking forward to work with my new colleagues!

Implementing time series multi-step ahead forecasts using recurrent neural networks in TensorFlow:
Recently I started to use recursive neural networks (RNNs) in TensorFlow (TF) for time series forecasting. Specifically, I’d like to perform multistep ahead forecasts and I was wondering how to do this (1) with RNNs in general and (2) in TF in particular. Here I summarize my insights. In particular I give a short overview over some available approaches. Furthermore, I provide code on GitHub which evaluates two simple approaches on real data.

Coordination via predictive assistants from a game-theoretic view:
How can predictive computational assistants - similar to Google’s “Popular Times” - help for coordination between humans in congested facilities? We analyze this problem using causal, time series and game theoretic models as well as real experiments in our campus cafeteria. Check out our preprint “Coordination via predictive assistants from a game-theoretic view”!

PhD completed: causal models for decision making via integrative inference:
In June, I passed the final exam of my PhD. The final version of my thesis “Causal models for decision making via integrative inference” is available for download.
