I’m a researcher at the RIKEN Center for Advanced Intelligence Project and a member of the Approximate Bayesian Inference team where I work with Emtiyaz Khan. Before that, I completed my PhD in the Computer Vision & Artificial Intelligence group at TU Munich under the guidance of Daniel Cremers.

My current focus is on the design and analysis of new data-driven algorithms to make machine-learning systems more robust and adaptable in a dynamic and uncertain world.
