A smiling Rabanus in its natural habitat.

Hello, I'm Rabanus. Since October 2021 I am pursuing my PhD under supervision of Bob Williamson in the group "Foundations of Machine Learning Systems". I am working on the implication of probability theoretical assumptions on ethical considerations in machine learning. More concretely, one of my last work established an insightful connection of fairness notions in machine learning and a century-old randomness notion by Von Mises. I have investigated so-called Dynkin-systems, exotic set structures, as possible generalised domains for probabilities. They nicely align to debates about quantification in privacy-preserving and intersectional settings. My current interest shifted towards game-theoretic probability, a framework bringing together ideas from probability and game theory.

For a list of publication see GoogleScholar or ResearchGate.

I am a scholar in the International Max Planck Research School for Intelligent Systems (IMPRS-IS).
