In 2015 I received my bachelor degree in Computer Science at the University of Luxembourg. Afterward, I pursued my master studies at the Saarland University where I specialized on data mining and planning. During my master studies I worked with Dr. Jilles Vreeken on graph summarization using Information Theory. Since 2018 I am working on my PhD at the University of Basel supervised by Prof. Malte Helmert and Prof. Jörg Hoffmann

My research interests are planning, deep learning, and data mining. Currently, I am working on combining planning and neural networks.
