I am a data scientist, a leader, and a philosopher. I am currently doing a stint in policy, as Director of AI & Data at the German Ministry of Health’s in-house think tank. Here, I work on topics such as data availability and representativeness, or certification of machine learning-based medical products. Special projects have included the German Corona-Warn-App and behind-the-scenes work on cyber security.
Previously, I led data science teams at QuantCo, a German-American startup specializing in causal inference and machine learning. My work spanned from e-commerce to health insurers, and much of it focused on parsing out causal signal from observational data. I am proud to say that all our work delivered soundly measured value in our clients’ core business.
I hold a masters in data science from Stanford University, and two bachelor degrees in economics and philosophy from Heidelberg University.
