Hello, it's Max! I am affiliated with the Digital Health Group (TUM) and the Institute for Digital Medicine (UKB).

Research Fields

My research area is at the intersection of mobile software engineering, machine learning, and medicine. Specifically, I am interested in using mobile sensor data to detect anomalies in an unsupervised manner to infer medical conditions. The nature of this sensitive data requires consideration of security aspects, such as secure aggregation, differential privacy, and federated learning.
