Professional Experience


Raicoon

Vienna, Austria
Data Scientist, Software Developer
Since June 2020

  • Using statistical analysis to detect recurrent device faults in solar plants
  • Building and maintaining an automatic fault reporting and ticketing engine for solar plant operators
  • Constructing a validation and labeling infrastructure for data analysis

University of Notre Dame

Notre Dame, IN
Graduate Research Assistant, Computer Science and Engineering
July 2016 – May 2020

  • Used deep learning techniques to reconstruct information in sparsely stored unsteady flow simulation
  • Lead a team of 6 undergraduate students for designing and developing a web-based educational tool for students to learn about graph visualization
  • Used novel spectral graph sparsification methods combined with a focus+context interaction to allow exploration of big graphs
  • Designed a deep learning-based framework to detect salient isocontours in plasma fusion data
  • Analyzed time-varying multivariate data by cross-comparison allowed through high-performance isosurface recommendation
  • Introduced an iterative algorithm allowing to escape over-sampled areas in histogram methods and identifying nearly equally spaced isosurfaces
  • Improved the performance of isosurface selection by 8x by deriving an approximation algorithm and using GPUs

Argonne National Lab

Lemont, IL
Research Aide, MCS Department
May 2018 – July 2018

  • Designed a workflow to annotate XGC plasma fusion data for supervised learning methods
  • Assembled prototypes for different deep learning models to detect “blobs” in unlabeled XGC plasma fusion data

  • Collaborated to write my master’s thesis on “Parallelization of BVH and BSP on the GPU” under the supervision of Prof. Werner Purgathofer
  • Implemented a parallel BVH creation and traversal algorithm using OpenGL and F#
  • Designed a workflow to subdivide an input scene into multiple cells to create multiple memory-conform BSPs in the same framework
  • Developed a software to iteratively optimize the curvature of bendable casts in 3D using a C#
