Biography

About myself

I am a PhD Candidate in Mechanical Engineering at UC Berkeley, working with Professor Claire J. Tomlin in the Hybrid Systems Laboratory with a focus on Systems and Controls. My research interests are at the intersection of control theory, computer science, and economics, with applications to energy markets. While doing research at Berkeley, I have earned MS degrees in Mechanical Engineering (2017) and Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (2016). Furthermore, I am pursuing a MA degree in Mathematics, which I hope to earn in the summer of 2018.

I graduated from Technische Universit√§t M√ľnchen, Germany in 2011 with a major in Mechanical Engineering (with distinction). In the fall of 2016, I was a visiting student in the Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems (LIDS) at MIT, supervised by Prof. Munther A. Dahleh and Dr. Mardavij Roozbehani.

In the summer of 2015, I worked as a Consulting Intern for Siemens AG in Munich, Germany.

Other activities

In my free time I enjoy doing triathlon and long-distance running, and I have achieved the title of Ironman 70.3 in July 2016.
