Lukas M. Weber
I am a postdoctoral fellow in the lab of Prof. Stephanie Hicks at the Department of Biostatistics, Bloomberg School of Public Health, Johns Hopkins University, where I am working on data analysis, statistical methodology, software development, and benchmarking for single-cell data.
I am interested in rigorous development and benchmarking of statistical and computational methodologies, motivated by real-data applications and collaborative projects in high-throughput biology, especially single-cell genomics and proteomics. Most of my work uses the R programming language, and I develop software packages for the Bioconductor project. I am strongly committed to open science, including publication of preprints and open access publications, as well as freely accessible software, code, and data repositories.
My training includes a PhD in Biostatistics with Prof. Mark Robinson at the University of Zurich, Switzerland; and a MSc in Statistics at ETH Zurich, Switzerland. Previously, I studied physics, mathematics, and economics at the University of Western Australia and Australian National University, and worked for several years as a policy analyst for the Australian federal public service.
