Trainers

Dr. Elmar Spiegel

Elmar Spiegel studied Statistics at the LMU Munich and obtained a Master of Science in 2013. Afterwards he worked as a research assistant at the University of Goettingen where he obtained his PhD in Statistics in 2017. In Goettingen he gave lectures and exercise classes in Spatial Statistics, Advanced Programming with R and Generalized Linear Models. His research interests are semiparametric regression and regression beyond the mean. In 2018 he started at the HMGU as a statistical consultant and gave lectures on basic statistics and programming with R. Further he is responsible for the organization of the training program.

Dr. Marina Jiménez Muñoz

Marina Jiménez Muñoz studied Statistics at the University of Kent in England where she graduated as a Master of Science in 2015. She obtained her PhD in Statistics at the University of Kent in 2020, where she also worked as a teaching assistant and statistics tutor. Her PhD thesis focused on developing methods for the joint analysis of spatial, sparse, or missing ecological data. From 2019-2021 she held a postdoctoral position at iDiv (German Centre for Integrative Biodiversity Research). Since 2021 she has worked at HMGU as a statistical consultant in the Core Facility-Statistical Consulting.  Her research interests are in the areas of biostatistics and statistical ecology with a focus on stochastic processes, population dynamics, and data integration methods.

Ronan Le Gleut

Ronan Le Gleut studied Statistics at the National School for Statistics and Information Analysis (ENSAI) in France where he obtained a Master of Science in 2013. He worked as a statistician at the National Institute of Statistics and Economic Studies in France between 2013 and 2018. He gave lectures at the ENSAI and ENSAE (France) on missing data, sampling theory, descriptive statistics and multivariate analysis. Since 2018 he has worked at HMGU as a statistical consultant in the Core Facility Statistical Consulting. He gives lectures on programming with R, basic statistics (random variables, hypothesis testing, regression) and on multivariate statistics (dimension reduction and clustering techniques). He is interested in regression and multivariate methods, machine learning techniques as well as sampling theory and missing data in surveys.

Hannah Marchi

Hannah Marchi studied (Bio-)Statistics at the LMU Munich. She obtained a Master of Science at the LMU in 2016. Since 2017 she is working at HMGU as a statistical consultant in the Core Facility Statistical Consulting and started additionally as a PhD student at the Bielefeld University in 2018. She gave lectures at LMU, Bielefeld University and HMGU, including tutorials on generalized regression and multivariate analyses, courses on R (introduction, markdown, ggplot2) and introductory courses for statistics. She is interested in regression analysis with complex covariate structure (e.g. longitudinal, network data), risk prediction and survival analysis. Please find further information here.

Raphael Meixner

Raphael Meixner studied Statistics at the TU Dortmund and obtained a Master of Science in 2020. Since 2021, he is working at HMGU as a statistical consultant in the Core Facility Statistical Consulting. In his role as a private tutor, he came across plenty of different basic and advanced lectures in statistics from various fields, e.g. economics, sociology, psychology, and acted as a docent to his students. He is interested in (financial) time series analysis, econometrics and sports statistics. Please find further information here.
