I received a master’s degree in high-energy physics from the Ludwig-Maximilians-University of München in 2016. In the same year, I joined Siemens as a Ph.D. student of computer science. My current research is primarily centered on different topics of artificial intelligence and quantum machine learning. One topic is the cognitive perspective of sematic and episodic knowledge graphs. I am also working on quantum algorithms, causal inference, NLP, and graph-related algorithms. 

Research Interests

  • Cognitive Deep Learning 
  • Temporal Knowledge Graphs
  • Causal Inference under Interference
  • Natural Language Understanding
