Linus Sommer
I am studying mathematics with minors in finance and computer science. My focus so far has been mainly on algebraic topics, theoretical computer science and invesing. I have been the speaker of the mathematics student council and a member of several councils e.g. a scholarship awarding committee and two appointment committees for professorships.
At MPI CBS, I use my quantitative skills to work on computational neuroscience problems. I have worked on cameraless eye tracking with DeepMReye, an open source deeplearing project that I have also contributed to. Currently, I am working on contributing a benchmark to Brain-Score, a platform that allows researchers to compare their model Model against standardized brain benchmarks on multiple dimensions. My contributions:
At KPMG, I organized the bi-weekly team meeting, wrote the weekly data security newsletter and investigated the state of critical infrastructures in Germany.
At MPI MiS, I collaborated with Paul Breiding, Julia Lindberg, and Gabriel Ong. We worked on a problem in enumerative geometry. How many real circles are tangent to three conics in the plane? I contributed a deeplearing model that can predict the number of real tangent circles with 95% accuracy. Our results have been published published in Le Matematiche. Documents:
At the Fraunhofer Center for Silicon Photovoltaics, my work focused on modeling the string power of large PV parks, I did this with very high accuracy > 98%. I also used clustering to detect faults and degradation in PV parks. As part of the project VR4PV I investigated possible uses of geographic information systems for visualizing PV data.
As a volunteer, I helped organize the conference, introduced several speakers, and moderated the QA sessions that followed the presentations.
I gave a short presentations about the real circles tangent to three conics project.
