I am statistician (aka data science) researcher. My main interests are machine learning, statistical modelling, programming, automated reporting, and data visualization.
Anyway, besides research I am very enthusiastic about running, cycling, music, and taking photos.
Currently I am PhD candidate at the working group for Statistical Learning and Data Science which is part of the Ludwig Maximilians University.
Besides the theoreical aspects of machine learning and statistics, which I find very important, I am also interested in the practical applications of machine learning. Therefore, I am author of a model-based boosting package called compboost written in C++ and R as well as collaborator at the mlr project.
