I received my doctoral degree (Dr. rer. nat.) from TU Darmstadt in December 2013, and was an interim/visiting professor of mathematical optimization at TU Braunschweig in winter 2014/15. From January 2017 to September 2019, I was with the Chair of Operations Research and the Visual Computing Institute at RWTH Aachen University, where I headed the unit "Data" of the profile area CompSE (Computational Science and Engineering) of the RWTH. In October 2019, I rejoined the Institute for Mathematical Optimization at TU Braunschweig.
My research interests include theoretical and practical aspects of (discrete) optimization and complexity theory in areas like compressed sensing, signal and image processing, machine learning, and operations research.
