Tobias Ziolkowski, a guest researcher joining Michoel’s group who will work with us at CBU for 3 months.
Tobias started his PhD in January 2022 after two years of research experience at the Christian-Albrechts-University in Kiel. His working group “Magmatic and Hydrothermal Systems” at GEOMAR focuses on the topics oceanic volcanism, petrology, marine mineral resources and seafloor modelling.
Especially in the field of seafloor modelling, data sets from the deep sea are regularly used to map the oceans and to identify interesting underwater structures. Seafloor mapping depends strongly on the data quality of the recorded data.
During his PhD time so far, Tobias has dealt intensively with the identification of outlier in multibeam echo-sounder data and has already been able to automatically identify them with density- and distance-based methods and machine learning.
During the research stay Tobias hopes to enhance his skills in causal structure learning algorithms and causal inference to further optimize my approach.
