I am a Weierstrass Group Leader at the Data-driven Optimization and Control research group, Weierstrass Institute, Berlin. I am also an affiliated researcher with the Empirical Inference Department, Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems, Tübingen.
My group focuses on the mathematical foundations and applications of machine learning and data-driven optimization & control, especially on robustness (distributional robustness/adversarial robustness/generalization/causal intervention/robust optimization), and interfacing dynamical systems and learning.
I write a blog here.
In general, I am an applied mathematician interested in optimization, machine learning (with a focus on distributional robustness), function spaces, dynamical systems, and control. More specifically, I am interested in the following technical topics.
- Machine learning, distributional robustness, kernel methods
- Numerical analysis, numerical optimization
- Distributionally robust optimization, stochastic optimization
- Dynamical systems, control
