Konstantin Donhauser

PhD student at AI Center
(joint with Afonso Bandeira)

I am an ETH AI Center Doctoral Fellow. My research interest is in High-​Dimensional Statistics and more generally in the combination of Mathematics & Machine Learning.  I’m part of the groups led by Fanny Yang and Afonso Bandeira.
