Hannes Nickisch

Position: Research Scientist  Unit: Alumni Schölkopf

My research is focussed on approximate inference and estimation in generalised linear models such as Gaussian processes and sparse linear models. Applications include MRI sequence design and image reconstruction as well as density estimation and classification.
