Since August 2022, I am PhD student in Machine Learning working at the Division of Systems and Control at the Department of Information Technology, Uppsala University. In my research I focus on the intersection of Machine Learning and Optimization. I am specifically interested in how Machine Learning can be used in order to speed up the solving time of large-scale optimization problems.

My supervisors are Jens Sjölund (main) and Ozan Öktem from KTH, Stockholm. My research is supported by the Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program (WASP) funded by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation.

I recieved a MSc in Computer Science from Uppsala University in 2022. Prior to that I revieved my BSc degree from the University of Passau, Germany in 2019. In my free time I enjoy reading books and playing basketball.


Dec 20, 2023 I have been accapted as a participant for the Machine Learning Summer School (MLSS) in Okinawa, Japan.
May 29, 2023 I have submitted my first paper which uses graph neural networks to accelerate solving linear equation systems. The preprint can be found here.
Aug 15, 2022 I am starting as a PhD student at Uppsala University supervised by Jens Sjölund and Ozan Öktem.
