About

Welcome to my homepage! My name is Philipp Burckhardt. Currently, I am a postdoctoral researcher in Statistics & Data Science at Carnegie Mellon University, where I continue the work of my PhD disseration by developing an e-learning platform for statistics education built on state-of-the-art web technologies (http://isledocs.com/). Besides my PhD, I hold a Master's of Philosophy in Public Policy and Management. Before coming to CMU, I completed a Master's program in Applied Statistics at the University of Oxford. I also hold a Bachelor's degree in economics from Humboldt-University.

Some of my interests are the development of statistical methods for analyzing unstructured textual data, specifically from the health-care domain and to develop platform-independent and browser-enabled statistical tools, to aid decision-making and make it easier to turn insights into action. Together with Athan Reines, I am developing a standard library for JavaScript (https://github.com/stdlib-js/stdlib) with the goal of bringing statistical computing to the Web. I have spoken at various international conferences on topics ranging from political science, health-care informatics to machine learning and software engineering.
