Research Interest

I am interested in the theory and application of Bayesian Statistics. Currently, I am using Bayesian Modelling for Point Processes on Wholesale Data in Retail Fashion. For my Master-Thesis, I worked on the application of Bayesian Hierarchical Models to Meta-Analyses.

Check out my 3 Minute Thesis Talk to get a short introduction to my research!
