I am a research scientist at Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in Sciences and adjunct associate lecturer at UNSW Sydney. My research interests lie in computational mathematics, statistics, machine learning, and data science. In particular, I am working on applied harmonic analysis, deep learning, graph neural networks, Bayesian inference, information geometry, random fields, and applications to cosmology, geophysics and biomedical technology.
