Konstantin Donhauser


My name is Konstantin Donhauser and I am a first year PhD student at the ETH Zurich AI center supervised by Fanny Yang and co-supervised by Afonso Bandeira. I have a Masters and Bachelors degree in Electrical Engineering and a Bachelors degree in Mathematics all from the ETH Zurich.

My research focus can broadly be summarized as anything related to the theoretical aspects of machine learning. In particular, I have recently worked on topics related to high dimensional statistics, interpolation theory and adversarial robustness.
