Hi, I’m Mario!

I’m a doctoral researcher in the International Max Planck Research School for Intelligent Systems (IMPRS-IS) and the Graduate Academy of the Stuttgart Center for Simulation Science (SimTech) with a background in physics. My supervisors are

  • Dr. Miriam Klopotek (Many-Body Simulations and Machine Learning Group, Stuttgart Center for Simulation Science (SimTech), University of Stuttgart)
  • Prof. Dr. Christian Holm (Institute for Computational Physics (ICP), University of Stuttgart)
  • Dr. Georg Martius (Autonomous Learning Group, Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems, Tübingen).

I am interested in applying methods from many-body physics to machine learning, for example using reservoir computing.
I am curious about finding optimal conditions for learning in these systems using tools and techniques from statistical physics. An application is the forecasting of complex and chaotic spatio-temporal systems.
Emergence and collective behavior, evolutionary methods, artificial life as well as open-endedness are topics that interest me as well.
