Andreas Windisch received his Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics ‘sub auspiciis praesidentis rei publicae’ in 2014 in Graz and was awarded the Austrian Ring of Honor ’sub auspiciis peaesidentis’ by the Austrian President Dr. Heinz Fischer in 2015. He accepted an appointment as a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Washington University in St. Louis, and won a FWF Schroedinger Fellowship.
Andreas developed a strong interest in machine learning, data science and quantum computing. After overall close to 5 years in the US he returned to Austria, where he joined the research center Know-Center as a team leader in Data Science in April 2020.
Andreas is co-founder of the Reinforcement Learning Community (a work group that is part of the think tank AI Austria), holds an honorary affiliation with Washington University in St. Louis, volunteers as an academic mentor in the Start-Up incubator ’Science Park Graz’, and teaches machine learning and data science at the University of Applied Sciences FH JOANNEUM in Graz. Since March 2022, he holds an additional appointment with Graz University of Technology as a part time research scientist.
