    About me

    I am Mario Wieser and I received my bachelor degree in computer science from HFU Furtwangen in 2012. From 2012 to 2013, I was a research assistant in the Smart Grids group at Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems (ISE) in Freiburg. In 2015, I obtained the master degree in computer science with a focus on software engineering and cognitive systems from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). Subsequently, I joined the Biomedical Data Analysis group at University of Basel to work towards the PhD degree. I am part of the HIV-X project and my research interests include both Bayesian and Bayesian non-parametrics for probabilistic modeling and inference in order to solve high-dimensional biomedical problems. Apart from research, I enjoy traveling and playing football.
