I am a Research Staff Member in IBM Research – Zurich. I joined IBM Research in 2013, after I have worked as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Max-Planck Institute for Informatics (MPII) in Germany. I received my Ph.D. in computer science in 2011 and M.S. in computer science in 2007 from the Max-Planck Institute for Informatics / Saarland University.
I am interested in the areas of machine learning, deep learning, NLP, transfer learning, services research, and health informatics (HIV therapy optimization and drug resistance).
