Dr Jochen Einbeck is a methodological statistician with interest in nonparametric and robust statistical modelling under diverse and complex data scenarios, including high-dimensional and count data.
Dr Einbeck obtained his PhD in Munich in 2003, in the field of nonparametric regression, followed by a post-doctoral position at the National University of Ireland, Galway, where his work focused on random effect models. He took on a position as Lecturer at Durham University in 2006, and is Senior Lecturer since 2013.
His research activities at Durham have initially concentrated on nonparametric methods for high-dimensional data, specifically the estimation of, and regression on, principal manifolds and related structures. More recently, he has devoted particular attention to the biomedical field, specifically mentioning radiation-dose estimation from biomarkers (such as chromosomal aberrations, gene expressions) and related uncertainty analysis.
Dr Einbeck is Associate Editor of Statistics – A Journal of Theoretical and Applied Statistics and Computational Statistics and Data Analysis, and member of the Executive Committee of the Statistical Modelling Society.
