I received my Bachelor's degree in Mechatronics and Electrical Engineering at the University of Applied Sciences Esslingen and wrote my Bachelor thesis at Daimler on the computation of Flexray clock precisions of new physical network configurations. For my Master's degree, I studied Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at the University of Stuttgart. My interest in the field of machine learning has been aroused at the Institute of Signal Processing and System Theory, where I wrote a study about Speech Emotion Recognition using Hidden Markov Models and my Master's thesis on Active Learning for Image Retrieval.
