I am a professor for computer science, with research focus on the theory of machine learning. I am also a fellow at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems. For family reasons, I currently work part-time.


News. We are still looking for a postdoc on any topic that is related to our work on learning theory, see here.

Research. My research focus is on theoretical questions about unsupervised machine learning, in particular the statistical analysis of algorithms on random graphs and ordinal data analysis.   Publications     Our research seminar


I am coordinating the research cluster Machine learning: New Perspectives for Science (jointly with Philipp Berens).


Public AI discussion. In the city of Tübingen, and also in the wider context of Germany, there is an ongoing discussion about research in artificial intelligence and its impact on future society. I find this discussion important and actively participate(d) in quite a number of past events (my favorite one: KI, Wissenschaft, Gesellschaft und Verantwortung: Ein interaktives Seminar zur Meinungsbildung). Upcoming events in this context:

  • 15.1.2020: Panel discussion "Algorithmus.Macht.Zukunft. - Was macht der Mensch?". KHG, Tübingen (20:15, Belthlestr. 40)
  • 6.2.2020 Podiumsdiskussion KI, Tübingen
  • 27.4.2020: Panel discussion about AI, Stuttgart
