Felix Schur

PhD student in Statistics at ETH Zurich, Seminar for Statistics.


I am a PhD student in Statistics at ETH Zurich under the supervision of Jonas Peters. My research interests lie in the intersection of Machine Learning and Statistics. I am particularly focused on Causality and Reinforcement Learning.

I completed my MSc at ETH Zurich, under the supervision of Andreas Krause and Peter Bühlmann. I wrote my master’s thesis on the topic of Lifelong Meta-Learning for Bayesian Optimization, which earned me the ETH Medal in recognition of my research.

I am also CTO at Askantis GmbH.
