I am a PostDoc and the deputy group leader of the optimization and control group at the Institute for Automation and Applied informatics.
Feel free to checkout my GitHub profile, or my Google scholar profile.
In case you need to write a paper, be sure to check out these guidelines.
I am the main developer of the PolyChaos package, a Julia package for orthogonal polynomials, quadrature rules, and polynomial chaos expansions.
My research interests radiate around the intersection of numerical optimization, power systems, and uncertainty quantification. Working at the intersection or the interface of research areas is of great interest to me as it allows to learn the different languages, and to see how concepts are being constructed differently in different communities. I am fond of the Julia programming language.
|2015 – 2019||PhD candidate at Institute for Automation and Applied Informatics at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology.
Title of dissertation: “Uncertainty Quantification via Polynomial Chaos Expansion – Methods and Applications for Optimization of Power Systems”
|2013 – 2015||M.Sc. Cybernetics, Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg|
|2009 – 2013||B.Sc. Cybernetics, Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg|
