Julia Herbinger


I started as a PhD student at the working group for Statistical Learning and Data Science at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich in August 2020. My main research focus is on Interpretable Machine Learning.

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