I am a Principal Investigator at the ELLIS Institute in Tübingen, co-affiliated with the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems and the Tübingen AI Center. My research focuses on machine learning in social context and the role of prediction in digital economies. I strive to develop theoretical and practical tools to support a safe, reliable and trustworthy digital ecosystem with a positive impact on society. Before joining the ELLIS Institute I was a group leader at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems and spent two years as a SNSF postdoctoral fellow at UC Berkeley hosted by Moritz Hardt. I have obtained my PhD from ETH Zurich, advised by Thomas Hofmann. During my PhD I was employed at IBM Research Zurich where I co-lead the design of the IBM Snap ML library which is now part of IBM's core AI offerings.
I am building up a new research group at the ELLIS institute in Tübingen!
