Raphael Sonabend


I am a senior data scientist specialising in machine learning theory and applications in survival analysis. My research interests lie in ethical survival modelling, specifically in the healthcare industry.

I am currently a full-time Technology Manager at the Wellcome Trust, as well as a part-time Research Assistant in the COVID-19 real time modelling team in the Department of Infectious Disease Epidemiology at Imperial College London, and a part-time Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Computer Science in the University of Kaiserslautern.

I have published several packages in R to help make machine learning more accessible, as well as a universe of packages that help expand R's object-oriented capabilities.
