Hello, my name is Simon. I am a PhD candidate in Computational Biology at the CBG at ETH. My work revolves mainly around the analysis of large-scale genetic perturbation screens using graphical models, machine learning methods, and big data technologies. Apart from that I am broadly interested in Bayesian statistics, causal inference and probabilistic programming. Before doing a PhD I've studied Bioinformatics (M. Sc. and B. Sc.) at TU Munich and LMU Munich, primarily focusing on graph theory and algorithmics.

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