Student Area


This is the right page if you are looking for a bachelor's project.

And it is also the right page if you are looking for a master's project.

Office hours concerning my courses are before/after the course, or by arrangement.

Sprechstunde bez. Lehrveranstaltungen ist vor/nach der Lehrveranstaltung, bzw. nach Vereinbarung.

Die Sprechstunde als Studienbeauftragte für die Studien BA und MA Mathematik und Studienbevollmächtigte für das Unterrichtsfach Mathematik ist Dienstags von 13:00 bis 14:00. Für die Zuteilung eines Termins, schicken Sie mir bis Montag um 14:00 eine Email mit Betreff Studienbeauftragte und einer möglichst detaillierten Beschreibung Ihres Anliegens.

Bachelor's projects

In case of interest in one of the proposed projects, contact me before the beginning of the 'Seminar with Bachelorarbeit'.
If the project you are interested in is not mentioned below but should be, come for a chat way before the beginning of the 'Seminar with Bachelorarbeit'.

Master's projects

I offer master's projects in the areas of signal processing, sparse approximation, dictionary learning and machine learning.
Recommended prerequisites are good knowledge of linear algebra and probability theory and/or functional analysis.

The goal is to contribute to an active area of research and so the project will be tailored to currently open questions and your personal interests. If you are super-strong and mega-motivated there is also the possibility to do a more substantial but paid master's thesis within the START-project 'Optimisation Principles, Models & Algorithms for Dictionary Learning', which can continue on to a PhD.

In case of interest have a look at the research or publications page and contact me for a first chat.
