As a child, I was fascinated by puzzles and combinatorial problems. Since 2015, my studies of computer science at the University of Basel have allowed me to persue this interest academically. During this time, my interests evolved around planning and optimization, aiming to solve such problems automatically. I completed my Bachelor's and Master's degree in 2018 and 2020, respectively. Since then, I have been working on my PhD in the AI group here in Basel.
My current research focus lies in using ordered landmarks to guide heuristic search for solving classical planning problems.
