This is the website for the working group Computational Statistics at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich.
Prof. Dr. Bernd Bischl is head of the working group since summer 2015.
Our research areas of interest are
- predictive modelling, especially non-linear classification and regression
- ensemble techniques
- statistical / machine learning
- statistical computing and computational statistics
- model- and variable selection
- expensive black-box optimization
- bayesian optimization
- statistical software development
The group also organizes the Münchner R Kurse, which are training courses on statistics, data science and programming in R.
