Chris Kolb


I am a PhD student at the Chair of Statistical Learning and Data Science (SLDS) in the Department of Statistics at the LMU Munich since April 2021. Prior to that, I obtained a Bachelor's degree (B.Sc.) in Economics from Goethe University Frankfurt and a Master's degree (M.Sc.) in Statistics from Humboldt University Berlin.

My main research focus is on the amalgamation of statistics and machine learning concepts. At the moment, I work on combining structured additive regression models and deep neural networks.
