I recently started as a PhD student of Statistics at the Copenhagen Causality Lab with Prof. Jonas Peters.
I have two bachelor degrees in Mathematics and Mathematical Economics and a master degree in Statistics, all from the University of Copenhagen. During my studies, I have spent semesters at University of Aarhus, University of Hong Kong and ETH Zürich.
I am interested in Mathematical Statistics, in particular in causal inference, graphical models, machine learning, optimization and dynamical systems. Feel free to reach out!
