Vita

 

I studied Computer Science at the Otto-von-Guericke University (OvGU) in Magdeburg (Germany) and University of Abertay in Dundee (Scotland). Back in Magdeburg I finished my Master's degree in October 2017.

My current research interests are computational intelligence in games and intelligent data analysis. My current focus is on partial information games, and learning rules and strategies from succesful playthroughs. Additionally, I am always looking for real-world applications for computational intelligence methods.

Hearthstone AI Competition

I am the organiser of the international research competition on Hearthstone AI, which was part of the IEEE Conference on Computational Intelligence and Games 2018. The competition focuses on the development of autonomous Hearthstone agents and tested the agent's skill on multiple game playing tasks. It attracted a total of 50 submissions and was the largest competition of the conference. Due to numerous requests, it will be held again at the IEEE Conference on Games 2019. More information can be found at http://www.ci.ovgu.de/Research/HearthstoneAI.html
