    Curriculum vitae

    Christoph Reichert studied at the Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg where he received his Diploma in computer science in 2007. Afterwards he worked as a researcher at the Department of Neurology in the University Medical Center in Magdeburg. In 2015 he started his work at the Leibniz Institute for Neurobiology. His PhD degree he received in 2016 from the University’s Faculty of Computer Science. His main interest is in application of machine learning techniques for decoding electrophysiological brain signals.
