I am a passionate researcher with a focus on data-driven modeling and machine learning. My research interests include surrogate modeling, surrogate-based optimization, data-driven modeling, and generative models. With a background in mechanical engineering and a strong work ethic developed through my years as a competitive swimmer, I bring a unique perspective to my research. I completed my bachelor’s studies through a dual study system with BASF, Germany’s largest chemical company, and finished my master’s studies on the topic of reduced order modeling and optimal flow control. I have also published a student project on the generation of synthetic ground penetrating radargrams using generative adversarial networks (GANs). I am proficient in programming with Python and have a growing enthusiasm for the rising popularity of Julia in my current work on surrogate-based optimization. Thank you for visiting my profile and feel free to reach out for further collaboration or inquiries.
