I'm a PhD student at the DSS chair supervised by Prof. Bichler. I'm interested in using math, data and algorithms to enable smart decision making. My dissertation research focusses on computation of equilibria in incomplete information games, especially markets and auctions and using multi-agent reinforcement learning methods. You can find more information about me on GitHub or LinkedIn.
