PD Dr. Andreas Beyerlein

Helmholtz Zentrum Munich
Core Facility Statistical Consulting
Deputy Head

Mission Statement:

I am deputy head of the Core Facility Statistical Consulting at the Helmholtz Zentrum Munich.

I realized already at a very early stage of my career how scientific results can be affected by subjective / doubtful decisions made before, during or even after the data analysis process, such as lack of a clear pre-specified hypothesis, preliminary analysis during the time of data collection, data analysis without well-documented or even any program code, or p-hacking. In my current position, one of my responsibilities is to advocate PhD candidates and young postdocs in good scientific practice related to statistical analysis. Additionally, I am planning to make my program codes from previous and future projects publicly available, where possible.
