Hi all. My name is Wittawat (http://wittawat.com). I am a machine learning researcher. My areas of expertise include nonparametric hypothesis testing, two-sample testing, model evaluation, and model comparison. In simple terms, you give me two collections of data, or one collection and one model, and I will tell you if they match. Feel free to contact me if there is a chance that I may be able to help. Tools: Python and the usual Python software stack (numpy, scipy, Pytorch, …).

Hi, I’m a PhD student at MPI Tübingen working on natural language processing (NLP) in the medical domain. If you need to analyze textual data I am happy to contribute!

I also have also some experience with detecting cells in microscopy images (e.g. cancer cells) as well as time-series prediction.

Best, Fabian

Hi, I am Mangal Prakash. I am PhD student at Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics. I have experience working on image and signal analysis. I have worked with biological image datasets and I build and use tools from Computer Vision and Machine Learning to facilitate bio image analysis. This forum is a great effort in my opinion and I am looking forward contributing with image based data analysis for fighting COVID19

Hi all, I am Krikamol Muandet (http://krikamol.org/) from Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Tuebingen, Germany. My research aims at bridging the gap between randomized experiments and observational studies and developing machine learning models that can generalize well in the real-world. I am not really an expert, but I might be able to help with problems related to the following topics:

  • Causal inference in potential outcome framework
  • Econometrics
  • Kernel methods

Hello everyone,
I’m Felix, a PhD student at the MPI-IS in the Empirical Inference department.
My background is in biophysics (running MD simulations), quantum computing (simulating trapped ions), and robotics (visuomotor control).
My current focus is on structured representation learning (especially from image data) and learning dynamics models. Python, and especially pytorch, is my main tool, but with a hint of julia - if the need arises.
