Research Interests

In his research, Björn Bokelmann explores statistical properties of diverse methods from the fields of predictive modeling and causal inference/uplift modeling. Based on these statistical analyses, he derives optimized application solutions. The application fields are quite diverse and include tourism demand forecasting, optimization of treatment allocation in online marketing and optimal planning of clinical trials in the presence of effect size uncertainty.
