Senior Research Scientist

Sony R&D


I am currently working at Sony Europe in Stuttgart as a senior research scientist. Previously, I was attending a structured PhD program at the University of Tuebingen and IMPRS-IS supervised by professors Hendrik P. A. Lensch and R. Harald Baayen. My PhD projects focused on bridging language with vision where knowledge of both modalities is required.
My free time is mainly occupied by doing sports, making handcrafts, and learning new languages. Feel free to browse around to find out more about me.
