Research interests

Marc is interested in the mathematical and algorithmic underpinnings of human behaviour and the interaction of humans with their environment. In his PhD, Marc is working on modelling the relationship between physical activity and health in humans. Prior to that he studied Cognitive Science at the university of Tübingen focusing on different aspects of human information processing. His interests span from language processing over neuronal information processing and mutlimodal integration to statistical modelling and machine learning.

His main interest is applying mathematical and algorithmic techniques to the human sciences.

Marc is a big fan of open source and open science and contributed to several projects.
