My main research interest lies in the analysis of time series data using Deep Learning. Specifically Mixed-Type and Irregularly Sampled Time Series Analysis. In many real world applications and in the sciences it is not possible to get regularly spaced observations of the phenomena/system of interest. My applications reach from healthcare to predictive maintenance over predictive business process analytics. I am also interested in more fundamental properties of time series data and mechanisms for learning.
