I am working as a PostDoc (Habilitand) leading the subgroup ”Multivariate Time Series in Neurology” in the group of Jens Timmer ”Data Analysis and Modeling of Dynamic Processes in the Life Sciences” at the Freiburg Center for Data Analysis and Modeling, University Freiburg, Germany and the Department of Physics, University of Freiburg, Germany.
Concerning theoretical research, I am mostly interested in methods for the analysis of times series originating from multivariate dynamic processes. These methods are applied to fMRI, EEG and EMG data from healthy subjects and from patients suffering from neurological diseases, like Stroke or Parkinson tremor. This research is done in cooperation with the Department of Neurology of the University Hospital of Freiburg. For further info please visit the Tremor Homepage and the Stroke Homepage.
In cooperation with the Epilepsy Center of the University Hospital Freiburg, I am working on the predictability of epileptic seizures. Besides the assessment of published seizure prediction methods with respect to their clinical applicability, we try to improve the performance of these up to now not sufficiently working methods.
