Hi, my name is Patrick! I’m a first-year Ph.D. student in Computer Science at Boston University advised by Aline Ene. I’m interested in both theoretical and empirical aspects of Machine Learning. At the moment, I am working on differentially private optimization and representation learning for tabular data.

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