Education

2021-now

Ph.D. in Computer Science

University of Wuppertal

I started my Ph.D. in 2021 to develop novel deep learning methods for Natural Language Processing that prevent human trafficking and other cybercriminal activities.

2018-2021

Master of Science in Computer Science

University of Wuppertal

My main research interests during the Master's program were deep learning methods for natural language processing. I graduated with a thesis about the efficient extraction of knowledge from neural language models such as BERT and GPT.

2015-2018

Bachelor of Science in Information Technology

University of Wuppertal

My main scientific interest towards the end of my bachelor studies was machine learning in computer vision. I wrote my bachelor thesis at Aptiv, a company that primarily deals with autonomous driving challenges. I graduated with a thesis about advanced methods for object detection to support the usually laborious data annotation process required for supervised machine learning.

Experience

2020-now

Full-time Laboratory Engineer

University of Wuppertal - Data & Knowledge Engineering Group

After successful collaborations during my Student Researcher Position, I decided to take a position as the Laboratory Engineer of Prof. Gipp's chair to continue with my Ph.D.

2019-2020

Student Researcher

University of Wuppertal - Data & Knowledge Engineering Group

As I got more interested in the research of Natural Language Processing and Deep Learning, Prof. Gipp invited me for a Student Research Position at his chair with a possible continuation as a Ph.D.

2018-2019

Student Trainee - Software Engineer

Aptiv PLC - AI Core Group

At Aptiv, I developed software based on deep neural networks to detect various objects such as vehicles and pedestrians from camera images. The developed algorithms track objects and predict their possible movements and interactions. Also, I supported developing an online 3D visualization engine for various vehicle sensors like LiDAR, radar, and cameras. This project has now been in live use for more than a year and generates several thousand labels per week, which Aptiv uses in productive systems like the algorithms developed above.

2018

Student Assistant in Computer Architecture

University of Wuppertal - Jülich Research Centre

Due to my interest in deep learning and parallel computing, I supported the lecture on computer architecture and high-performance computing by supervising the corresponding exercises.

Awards

2019-2020

Scholarship

University of Wuppertal - "Deutschlandstipendium"

Once per year, the German scholarship "Deutschlandstipendium" addresses hard-working and talented students. Vorwerk, a global player in the manufacturing and distribution of appliances, supported me from 2019-2020 in my Master's Program and provided me with exciting industrial insights. Thank's a lot, Vorkwerk!
