I am a member of the Intelligent Data Engineering Lab at the Informatics Institute of the University of Amsterdam, Netherlands. My research focus is on the field of data quality for and with machine learning.

Before that, I was a Postdoc at the Information Systems Group at the Hasso Plattner Institute, University of Potsdam. During my doctoral research at the same group, I worked in the field of data profiling with the aim of developing algorithms for efficiently processing and analyzing large volumes of data.

Beyond my research, I am also interested in keeping up with the latest developments in machine learning, data management, and integration. I am also constantly looking for new collaboration opportunities! Outside of work, I enjoy traveling, reading, cooking and training.

Research interests

  • Data quality for AI (fairness, non-discrimination, privacy)
  • Data profiling, integration and cleaning
  • Data mining and machine learning
  • Similarity search
