Hi, I’m Felix, currently working as a research associate and PhD student at the Software & Digital Business Group of Technical University of Darmstadt. Here, my time is split up between doing research in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) and advising cybersecurity startups. I am also an independent Data Science consultant. Please have a look at my dedicated page to see what I am able to offer to help you and your business.


Ever since my Masters degree studies in Information Systems, my main interests lie in applying machine learning techniques to real-world problems. In detail, my research interests include:

  • Ethical AI: transparency, fairness, safety, privacy and accountability for intelligent systems
  • Economical impact of AI: business models for ML-driven products, organization of ML teams
  • Technological development related to ML: deep reinforcement learning, Bayesian modeling

Work with startups

During my studies, my business partner and I ran a web agency for more than five years. At TUD, I can use my practical experience to help passionate founders in the area of cybersecurity and advise them on the following:

  • developing valid business models following the LEAN methodology and data-driven approaches
  • securing public funding in order to enable growth

Other interests

Besides my research and work, I am interested in the following areas:

  • mixed martial arts (MMA)
  • tennis (Roger Federer is my all-time favorite athlete)
