Cognitive
Data Science

Welcome! I am Dr. Jana Jarecki,
a data scientist and researcher currently
working at the University of Basel

Hi, I’m Jana Jarecki,
Data Scientist & Cognitive
Researcher — I analyze human
behavior by combining statistics
with machine learning.

I worked for leading research institutions, e.g., the global top-100 University of Basel and Europe’s top 25 Aarhus University, Denmark, with a Ph.D. in Computational Choice Modeling from the Max Planck Institute in Berlin and a double-degree at Germany’s most prestigious university LMU Munich, I have a strong publication record in peer-reviewed journals,  international conference presentations.

I have generated data-based insights into behavior (health, diseases, investments, consumer products) and perception (categories, features, sensory-motor, risk) by integrating different types of data (laboratory data, test results, sensor ratings, hand movements, web contents) collected by institutions, experiments, online surveys, web applications, mobile sensors, or financial providers and citizen science.

Evidence Requirements

Which questions to ask? Which evidence is needed? Ways to integrate evidence from multiple sources.

ML and Statistical Modeling

Train and test models, predict outcomes, and simulate processes, check for biases.

Data Management

Data integration from servers, data bases, spreadsheets, or real-world evidence from e.g., the internet or social media.

Translation to Models

What do verbal questions mean as models? Which co-variates are necessary? Which analyses are needed?
