PhD student at ETH Zurich / Adjunct researcher at Mercedes-Benz Research / Global Shaper at WEF
I'm a doctoral student at ETH Zurich Systems Group's DS3Lab, building AI systems that aim to advance sustainability and health. Before joining ETH Zurich, I was an autonomous driving engineer at Mercedes-Benz Research in Silicon Valley and a graduate student at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard. I'm a Global Shaper at World Economic Forum and the founder of Germany's largest machine intelligence meetup, Harvard University's refugees and education conference and Silicon Valley's selfdriving AI series.
