Sach Mukherjee is Programme Leader and Director of Research (part-time) in Machine Learning for Biomedicine at the BSU and Principal Investigator and Head of Statistics and Machine Learning at the DZNE in Bonn, Germany.
He earned a DPhil in machine learning at Oxford, was a postdoctoral fellow in statistics at UC Berkeley and has previously held faculty positions in Warwick and Amsterdam. His research interests centre on high-dimensional statistics and machine learning for biomedicine, including in particular methods for high-dimensional and heterogeneous data and causality. He has been a Fulbright Fellow and a recipient of the Wolfson Research Merit Award of the Royal Society.
