News

If you are looking to do a PhD with me, please apply directly to the Machine Learning Department and drop me a line. Since I'm just starting up, my funds are still limited. If you are an postdoc and would like to visit my lab by using an overseas funded grant such as the German Emmy Noether Programme, let me know. If you are in the Bay Area, I suggest you contact machine learning researchers at the excellent Universities in Stanford and Berkeley.

Interests

My primary research interest covers the following four areas: Stay tuned for more details.

Biography

I studied physics in Munich at the University of Technology, Munich, at the Universita degli Studi di Pavia and at AT&T Research in Holmdel. During this time I was at the Maximilianeum München and the Collegio Ghislieri in Pavia. In 1996 I received the Master degree at the University of Technology, Munich and in 1998 the Doctoral Degree in computer science at the University of Technology Berlin. Until 1999 I was a researcher at the IDA Group of the GMD Institute for Software Engineering and Computer Architecture in Berlin (now part of the Fraunhofer Geselschaft). After that, I worked as a Researcher and Group Leader at the Research School for Information Sciences and Engineering of the Australian National University. From 2004 onwards I worked as a Senior Principal Researcher and Program Leader at the Statistical Machine Learning Program at NICTA. From 2008 to 2012 I worked at Yahoo Research. In spring of 2012 I moved to Google Research to spend a wonderful year in Mountain View.
