From the academic corridors of Berlin's Technische Universität to Miami's bustling tech scene, my journey has been a blend of theory and application. My time as a Postdoc was dedicated to deep dives into Consensus Theory and Distributed Learning. This academic foundation played a pivotal role when I once shaped LifeTap, translating theoretical insights into AI recommendations. Moreover, my entrepreneurial spirit found another outlet in the insuretech space with Buoy, a venture I founded and where I presently lead as the CTO.
Mathematical modeling stands as the cornerstone of my professional endeavors, spanning areas from group recommendation algorithms to optimized pricing in insurance. In the automotive realm, I delve deep into pioneering distributed control through consensus and model predictive control techniques. This commitment is echoed through a multitude of scientific publications in these fields, many in collaboration with leading global research entities.
