Welcome to my website!

Currently, I am working as a postdoctoral researcher in the field of (Direct) Optimization and primarily Evolutionary Computation. I have received the Diploma in Mathematics from the Technical University of Dortmund, Dortmund, Germany, in 2009 and the PhD degree (Dr. rer. nat.) in Computer Science from Ulm University, Ulm, Germany in 2017.

My work is concerned with the performance analysis of Evolution Strategies (ES). In particular, I am investigating the behavior of (meta-)ES on noisy and/or constrained optimization problems. My interests involve the theoretical description of the related dynamical evolutionary system, as well as the design of new algorithm variants that successfully deal with specific difficulties in the mentioned environments.

Providing solutions to industrial real-world optimization problems is another field of interest.  Moreover, the combination of optimization approaches with engineering design automation tasks has become a recent domain of competence.
