I am currently Interim Professor of Computational Statistics at RWTH Aachen University for the winter semester 2023/24. Additionally, I have been a PostDoc in the group Statistical Methods in Epidemiology of Prof. Andreas Mayr at IMBIE, University of Bonn, Germany (on leave of absence since October 2023). See also my CV.
As a statistician with a mathematical background, I work at the intersection of Statistics, Computing and Biomedical Applications. My research particularly focuses on Statistical Learning and Regression Modelling for high-dimensional and complex biomedical data.
High-dimensional Statistics: Variable selection; Regularization; Bayesian methods
Computational Methods: Stochastic search; Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC); Boosting
Biomedical Applications: Polygenic risk scores in genetic epidemiology; COVID-19 modelling; Various applications in perinatal epidemiology, oncology, anesthesia, psychiatry and neuropsychology
