Second event of the series "MSCJ presents ..." by Michael Stifel Center Jena (MSCJ).

Here, members of MSCJ and other Jena researchers from the field of data-driven and simulation-based sciences introduce theirselves and their work in short talks (20 min + 10 min discussion). The presentations are followed by the opportunity for further discussion. The aim is to meet exciting people, research and ideas (in a discipline close to the own or with a new unexpected perspective) and to find collaboration partners for solving research questions that could be adressed best with perspectives from different disciplines.
The talks are given in English.

On 27.06.2024 MSCJ presents:

Prof. Dr. Tobias Koch

Psychological Methodology,
Friedrich Schiller University Jena

Prof. Koch's research focuses on longitudinal data analysis (including panel and intensive longitudinal data), Bayesian estimation, psychometrics, measurement theory, multitrait-multimethod analysis and causal inference, either individually or in any combination. He also uses machine learning and simulation-based methods in his research.

Dr. Kevin Maik Jablonka

CZS Research Group "Polymers in Energy Applications" (Carl-Zeiss-Stiftung),
Friedrich Schiller University Jena, Helmholtz Institute for Polymers in Energy Applications (HIPOLE)

The discovery of materials and molecules is a tedious, expensive, and serendipitous process. An important reason for that is that it requires a lot of experience and tacit knowledge to become good at designing new compounds. In the group of Dr. Jablonka, data-driven techniques are leveraged to address this information bottleneck to accelerate the development of materials that work in the real world, e.g. for energy storage and conversion.

"MSCJ presents ..." is hold twice in each lecture period. In the winter semester, there will be one event at the DLR institute of Data Science, to meet the researchers and research topics there. For the second event we are already in contact with our members Dr. Nina Hahn (UKJ, Department of Neurology) and Dr. Melike Dönertaş (CZS Research Group "AI in Microbiome and Aging Research").
