Tobias Pielok


I started as a PhD student at the chair of Statistical Learning and Data Science in the Department of Statistics at the LMU Munich on October 2020. My research focus is on Bayesian deep learning and model-based optimization.

I have a Bachelor's Degree (B.Sc.) in Statistics from the LMU Munich and a Bachelor's Degree (B.Sc.) in Mechanical Engineering from the TU Munich and a Master's Degree (M.Sc.) in Mechanical Engineering from the TU Munich.
