I'm a PhD student at the DSS chair supervised by Prof. Bichler. My research focusses on computation of equilibria in incomplete information games, especially markets and auctions and using multi-agent reinforcement learning methods.

We offer topics for student projects (MSc or BSc theses, IDP, Guided Research) in this research area on a continuing basis. If you're looking for a project and are interested in (Deep and/or Multi-Agent) Reinforcement Learning, Nonlinear Optimization, Market Design and/or Algorithmic Game Theory, feel free to get in touch. (For an MSc thesis, you should already have prior experience with one or more of these.)
