Dr. Gilles Kratzer

In September 2016, I joined the Applied statistics group as a PhD candidate in the PhD program “Epidemiology and Biostatistics” under the supervision of Prof. Reinhard Furrer.

After working several years in clinical research at different positions, I decided to enhance my education in Physics by doing a master degree in Biostatistics at the University of Zurich. I performed my Master thesis at Stockholm University under the supervision of Michael Höhle. My master thesis’ object is to apply simulation inference method to rotavirus reported data.


For those who want to know me better, here is my digital CV.
I also have a Blog


My PhD subject is to contribute to the R package: abn. It is a framework for modelling multivariate data using additive Bayesian networks. It provides routines to help determine optimal Bayesian network models for a given data set, where these models are used to identify statistical dependencies in messy, complex data.
