I studied Computer Science at the Technical University of Dortmund, Germany. In 2002, I received my Doctoral degree from the Faculty of Technology, Bielefeld University, Germany, and in 2010 my Habilitation degree from the Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Sciences, Ruhr-University Bochum, Germany. From 2003 to 2010, I was a Juniorprofessor for Optimization of Adaptive Systems at the Institut für Neuroinformatik, Ruhr-University Bochum. In October 2010, I was appointed professor with special duties in machine learning at DIKU. Since December 2014 I am full professor at DIKU.
My main research area is Machine Learning.
Currently I am particularly interested in
- support vector machines and other kernel-based methods,
- evolution strategies for single- & multi-objective optimization and reinforcement learning,
- deep neural networks and stochastic neural networks,
and applications of these methods.
