M. Sc.
PhD Researcher
Volkan Ün

After obtaining his bachelor’s degree in Mathematics, Volkan moved to Dresden to study Computational Modeling and Simulation with a focus on Life Science. Over the course of his studies, he worked on various topics such as predictive DNA models for the “Language of DNA”, diffusion models to edit and augment endoscopic images automatically, explainable AI methods for the understanding of anorexia nervosa, and reinforcement learning algorithms for the automation of a minimally invasive surgery task. He also regularly competed in artificial intelligence competitions. Currently, his research focus lies on multi-agent reinforcement learning with communication.
