Lisa Wimmer


I started as a PhD student at the Statistical Learning & Data Science working group in February 2022.

I obtained a Bachelor's degree (B.A.) in Business Administration from DHBW Ravensburg and a Bachelor's and consecutive Master's degree (B.Sc., M.Sc.) in Statistics from LMU Munich.

My main research focus is on the quantification of uncertainty, where I am active in our research subgroups Probabilistic Machine and Deep Learning and Causal and Fair Machine Learning.

Furthermore, I am part of the Data Science Group chaired by Prof. David Rügamer.

I receive funding from the Konrad Zuse School of Excellence in Reliable AI (relAI).
