Dr Daniel Berrar

Profile summary

Research interests

My research interests are machine learning, data science and the overarching field of artificial intelligence. My theoretical work revolves around statistical learning theory. In my applied research, I use methods from machine learning and statistics for data analysis and knowledge extraction from high-dimensional, semi-structured data sets, with a focus on the life and health sciences.

Teaching interests
