Hello, my name is Simon. I am a PhD candidate in Computational Biology at the CBG at ETH where I mainly work on statistical and graphical models for the analysis of large-scale genetic perturbation screens. Before that I've studied Bioinformatics (B. Sc. and M. Sc.) in Munich at TUM and LMU. I enjoy spending my time learning about statistical or probabilistic models (like GPs, DPs, etc.), programming, causal inference, graphical models, and almost anything related to computational science and ML.

In my free time I play the guitar, read philosophy and work on extending my Jazz collection!
