About Me

1003492_10153357853555214_1085485499_n I attained my Ph.D. in Artificial Intelligence from Maastricht University with a thesis entitled: “Automated Transfer in Reinforcement Learning”. I shortened a four-year Ph.D. study in two, after publishing over 24 papers in world-leading conferences, including the International Conference on Machine Learning, European Conference on Machine Learning, Autonomous Agents and Multi Agent Systems, and International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence.  Previously, I acquired my Master’s degree in Mechatronics with a summa cum laude from the University of Applied Sciences in Ravensburg, Germany. Previously, I was a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Pennsylvania. Currently, I am pursuing another post-doc at the Department of Operations Research and Financial Engineering (ORFE) at Princeton University. 

Journal and Conference Review:
 I served as a program committee member on world-leading machine learning and artificial intelligence journals and conferences, including, Journal of Machine Learning Research (JMLR), Machine Learning Journal (MLJ), Advances in Neuroprocessing (NIPS), International Conference on Machine Learning (ICML), European Conference on Machine Learning (ECML), International Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems (AAMAS), European Conference on Artificial Intelligence (ECAI), American Association Conference on Artificial Intelligence (AAAI), International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA).
