About me

I am a lecturer at Humboldt University Berlin and Chief AI Officer at my retail promotion personalization start-up SO1.

My research is located at the intersection of quantitative marketing, machine learning and econometrics. I develop and validate new machine learning methods for modeling the behavior of individual customers. My current projects focus on methodological research in Deep Learning that can be applied to promotion personalization, recommender systems, pricing, and assortment optimization in large-scale retailing settings.

In my industry work at SO1, I collaborate with leading marketing solution providers and grocery retailers to design and implement advanced machine learning systems for scalable and automated marketing personalization. These marketing solutions have helped retailers to increase their revenue, return on advertising spend, and conversion rates.
