Julia Moosbauer


After previously being a student assistant at the working group Computational Statistics at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich, I joined the group as a PhD student in november 2018 with a main focus on model-based optimization for hyperparameter optimization in machine learning. I am also a member of the Munich Center for Machine Learning (MCML).

I have a Bachelor's Degree (B.Sc.) in Mathematics from the TU Munich and a Master's Degree (M.Sc.) in Data Science (ESG) from the LMU Munich.
