Stefan Coors


I started as a PhD student at the working group for Computational Statistics at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich on June 2018 after being a student assistant. My main research focus is on automatic and classical Machine Learning .

I obtained a Bachelor's Degree (B.Sc.) and Master's Degree (M.Sc.) in Business Mathematics from the University of Bielefeld and a Master's Degree (M.Sc.) in Statistics from the LMU Munich.
