I am a machine learning research engineer at Adobe Research in California, working on generative models for image generation and editing. I am interested in developing models that allow generation and editing of images on general domains. Currently, I am working on large-scale generative diffusion models for Adobe Firefly for which I am the tech lead on the modeling side and one of the founding members.
I obtained my PhD at the Knowledge Technology group at the University of Hamburg (Germany). Before that, I completed a research oriented Master's degree in Intelligent Adaptive Systems at the University of Hamburg. I received a Bachelor's degree in Business Informatics at the University of Mannheim, during which I also studied at the National University of Singapore for one semester.

I had the chance to do an internship with Adobe Research in San-Francisco. Due to COVID all Adobe staff are working from home and so I did my internship remotely from Germany.

After attending the EEMLSS I was lucky enough to also attend the Deep Learning And Reinforcement Learning Summer School (DLRLSS) in Edmonton (Canada) 2019.
