Welcome to my personal page!
My name is Marcus Märtens and I joined the Advanced Concepts Team as a research fellow in the field of artificial intelligence (AI) February 2018. My particular interest is in evolutionary algorithms and multi-objective optimization.

Research becomes particularly exciting, if you cross disciplines and generate innovation, rather than just improving the state of the art. During my career I was fortunate to had the opportunity to team up with experts from various fields like
- fundamental physics (quantum computing)
My contributions to these projects were mostly coming from my background in machine learning, complexity theory, distributed computation, network science and web-technologies.
Space is exicting and during my time at ESA I learned a lot about trajectory design and participated successfully in several instances of the GTOC (Global Trajectory Optimization Competition). Together with my teammates, we received a HUMIES gold reward 2013 for developing an AI that outperformed human experts on designing a complex trajectory between the Galilean moons of Jupiter.
The topic of my PhD 2018 was “information propagation in complex networks”.
