About Me

I am a PhD candidate at the Institute of Mathematics, Technische Universität Berlin, working under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Sebastian Pokutta. I am also affiliated with the Interactive Optimization and Learning (IOL) research lab at 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 2D Computer Vision and Optimization, with a primary focus on developing efficient adversarial attack and defense techniques for deep neural networks. Currently, I am using first-order optimization methods to generate sparse adversarial attacks of high visual quality.
