Publications and research interests

Andreas Gros, PhD

Besides photography, I have a special interest in data mining, data visualization, socio-economic problems, and the challenges involved in dealing with very large amounts of data. I did a postdoc at NECSI and my background is in systems science, mathematics, computer science, and theoretical ecology.
