About me

I am currently a PhD Candidate at the ETH Zürich and the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ), while also affiliated with Helmholtz Imaging. I am interested in knowledge discovery for high-dimensional data. The focus of my research lies in explainable AI (XAI) and XAI evaluation with application in computer vision. Especially, I am working on attribution & attention methods, diverse XAI (meta-)evaluation, and leveraging XAI to understand data from the domains of 🩻 medical imaging, 🦠 microbiology, and 🧱 material sciences.
