Hi, my name is Patrick! I’m a second-year Ph.D. student in Computer Science at Boston University working with Venkatesh Saligrama. I’m interested in both theoretical and empirical aspects of Machine Learning. Currently, my focus is on understanding and exploring the in-context learning capabilities of transformers. Specifically, I am exploring their ability to perform in-context algorithm selection.

Before joining Boston University, I obtained a MS in Mathematics at Sorbonne University in Paris, France. I am originally from Weiden, Germany.
