Heidi Seibold


I am a postdoc at the working group for Computational Statistics at LMU Munich. In my work I focus on reproducible and open research as well as on machine learning methods for personalized medicine. I am a member of the LMU Open Science Center.

I did my PhD at the University of Zurich.
