Hi, I am Florian. I am a PhD student in mathematics at ETH Zurich. Born in London and grown up in Hanover, I have been living in Zurich since 2014. I obtained my BSc and MSc degrees in mathematics from ETH Zurich in 2018 and 2019, respectively. Currently, I am a PhD student at RiskLab in the group of Patrick Cheridito, co-supervised by Arnulf Jentzen.
My BSc and MSc studies focussed on dynamical systems theory and geometry. For my PhD, I turned my attention to the mathematical theory of neural networks. Therein, I am concerned with both approxmation (network architectures, curse of dimension) and optimization problems (convergence of training algorithms).
