Research Areas of the Applied Statistics Group

The research of our group focusses on applied statistics, which becomes more and more important in different fields of research such as medicine, genetics, toxicology, biology, social sciences, and economics, since the complexity and the amount of data collected in theses research areas increases continually so that statistical procedure are required to adequately analyze these data.

Our research, therefore, focusses on the development of statistical procedures for the analysis of data, in particular, from genetics, medicine, and toxicology, as well as the application of such procedures. One example for our research is the development of statistical methods for the assessment of genetic variants in microarray and sequencing studies. A project on this research topic was founded by the DFG from 2012 to 2017.

From April 2021 to September 2025, we are involved in the DFG-funded Research Training Group 2624 "Biostatistical Methods for High-Dimensional Data in Toxicology".
