Scientific Assistant @ZuseInstitute

TU Berlin/ZIB


I am a PhD candidate at the Institute of Mathematics, Technical University of Berlin, working under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Sebastian Pokutta. I am also affiliated with the Zuse Institute Berlin, where I hold a Scientific Assistant position.

I received an MSc in Mathematics in Data Science under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Michael Wolf at the Technical University of Munich in May 2020 and a BSc in Mathematics at the University of Tirana in July 2017.

My research interests lie at the interface of deep learning and optimal control, with a primary focus on developing efficient deep learning optimization algorithms of constant memory cost. Currently, I am using the Maximum Principle to study the (continuous) dynamical system approach to deep learning.
