Giuseppe Casalicchio


I joined the working group Computational Statistics at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich as a PhD student in 2013 and since 2014 I am the vice-chairman of the Münchner R Kurse. Besides that I am an active developer for a variety of R-packages and one of the main developers of OpenML (Open Machine Learning in R). From 2011-2015 I've worked for the Statistical Advisory Lab (StabLab) and as a teacher for various courses.
My Research Interests are reproducible research, predictive modelling, as well as automatic and interpretable machine learning.

I have a Bachelor's Degree (B.Sc.) and Master's Degree (M.Sc.) in Statistics from the Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich.
