He is working as a Research Associate at University of Bamberg since May 2022. He is a PhD candidate with research interest in data visualization, artificial intelligence, game analytics, and visual analytics. He is interested in visualizing the concepts learned by machine learning models, exploring intuitive visual representations of data or finding creative ways of narrating data stories, such as enriched data comics. He has developed visualizations for understanding the behaviors of trained agents in machine learning competitions (e.g., NeurIPS), which have been awarded by the community. For more details:

If you are interested in the research and looking for a project or thesis topic, please feel free to get in touch.
