Hi, nice to have you!
I am statistician (aka data science) researcher. My main interests are machine learning, statistical modelling, programming, automated reporting, and data visualization.
Anyway, I am also very passionate about web design, mathematics, astronomy and basically any type of natural and computer science.
Currently I am PhD candidate at the working group for computational statistics 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 an model-based boosting package called compboost written in C++ and R as well as collaborator at the mlr project. Additionally, I take part in data science competitions.
You can read about my contributions or other stuff (like blog posts about competitions) here.
