Dr. Dietmar Hareter studied Technical Mathematics, concentration in “Mathematics in Science”, with a focus on statistics as well as Actuarial Mathematics at the Vienna University of Technology. He is a Certified Actuary in the Actuarial Association of Austria (AVÖ) and has been involved in the development and implementation of forecasting models for more than 15 years.
Predoc-Position: Sebastian Baron (i-Twin: Borgelt)
Sebastian Baron MSc studied economics at the Leopold-Franzens-University Innsbruck and subsequently obtained his Master’s degree in the field of data science at the Paris-Lodron-University Salzburg. In the context of the iTwin project, he researches interoperability concepts for data-driven digital twins in the manufacturing industry.
Predoc-Position: Nicolas Dietrich (Data Science PhD Position, Red Bull: Trutschnig)
Nicolas Dietrich MSc completed both the Bachelor’s and Master’s degree programmes in mathematics at PLUS. In his Master’s thesis he worked on the existence of solutions for partial differential equations. In the meantime, he is doing his PhD in the field of dependency modelling and pattern recognition and is working on the convergence behaviour of copulae.
Predoc-Position: Raoul Kutil (AIDA-PATH: Borgelt)
Raoul Kutil MSc completed his Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in mathematics at PLUS and worked out a prototype algorithm for a new method to calculate the niche overlap. He is working on time series analysis with the matrix profile.
Predoc-Position: Patrick Langthaler (IDA Lab II: Bathke)
Patrick Langthaler completed his Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in mathematics at PLUS with a focus on statistics. Since then, he has been working on various projects at the PMU and the Salzburg Provincial Hospitals. As part of his doctorate, he is researching non-parametric statistical methods.
Predoc-Position: Marco Tschimpke (ProSA: Trutschnig)
Marco Tschimpke MSc completed his Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in mathematics at PLUS and focused on the field of probability theory and statistics. He is currently working on his PhD within a project with AMAG (ProSA project) and focuses on dependence modeling/detection and pattern recognition.
Masterstudent: Daniel Göller (KEDiff: Borgelt)
Daniel Göller discovered his fascination for languages in his bachelor’s degree and it accompanied him from then on. Therefore, we are glad that he can contribute and expand this interest in natural language processing (NLP) to the KEDiff project while writing his master’s thesis in data science.
Masterstudent: Melanie Löckinger (IDA Lab II: Trutschnig)
Manuela Löckinger currently completing his Master’s degree in Data Science at PLUS. She is working on a joint project with the Department of Environment and Biodiversity with a focus on Evolutionary Zoology and climate change effects.
Masterstudent: Fabian Sommerauer (DM-Trutschnig)
Fabian Sommerauer completed his bachelor’s degree in MMT (Multimedia Technology) at the FH Salzburg. He is currently completing his Master’s degree in Data Science at PLUS. He also works in the field of dependence modelling.
Bachelorstudent: Michael Entfellner (DM-Trutschnig)
Michael Entfellner is pursuing his Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics at PLUS and also works as a project team member in the area of technical analysis in the financial markets.
