Christoph Molnar


Since october 2017 I am a PhD student at the working group for Computational Statistics at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich, doing my research on Interpretable Machine Learning.

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