Speakers

Zofia Baranczuk

I am a lecturer at the Institute of Mathematics at the University of Zurich. I hold a PhD in Computer Science and a Master in Mathematics. I teach courses on Statistics and Statistical Modelling with a strong focus on R. Formerly, I worked as a data scientist at the Institute of Global Health at the University of Geneva, applying text mining and Bayesian Networks for analyzing HIV epidemics.

Gilles Kratzer

I am a PhD student at Zurich University in the applied statistics group. My research interests include Multivariate, Bayesian and systemic analysis. After working several years in clinical research at different positions, I decided to enhance my education in Physics by doing a Master degree in Biostatistics then a PhD. I am the author of abn, an R package for fitting Bayesian Networks to observational datasets and varrank an R packages for model-free variable selection in systems epidemiology. See here for an overview of my scientific publications.

Karsten Tabelow

I studied physics and made my PhD in High Energy Physics on strong interaction and gluons. In the last decade, my research interest has been medical image analysis, especially for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and neuroscience applications. This includes structure adaptive smoothing methods for functional and diffusion-weighted MRI and multi-parameter mapping (MPM). Furthermore, I am interested in reproducible research, open science, and research data.

Paul-Christian Bürkner

I am a Ph.D. statistician currently working at the University of Münster (Germany), Department of Psychology. I am the author of the R package brms and member of the Stan Development Team. Previously, I have studied Psychology and Mathematics at the universities of Münster and Hagen. See here for an overview of my scientific publications.

Simon Schwab

I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Reproducible Science and the Department of Biostatistics, University of Zurich. I obtained a PhD in Neuroscience and a Master in Psychology and Computer Science. Currently, I focus on teaching good research practice and research related to reproducibility. Formally, I was working on methods for functional brain connectivity at Warwick University and Oxford University.
