Janek Thomas


I am a PhD student at the department of statistics at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich in the working group computational statistics. I did my bachelor in statistics with a minor in computer science and continued with a master’s degree in statistics here at the LMU.

Most of my work is releated to statistics, machine learning and data science.
