Medical University of Vienna & PostDoc at the CSH
Jana Lasser has been a PostDoc researcher in the Section for Science of Complex Systems at Medical University of Vienna and the Complexity Science Hub Vienna since January 2020.
Jana studied physics at the Georg-August-University of Göttingen and graduated with an analysis and modeling of transport networks in nature. In her PhD at the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization, Jana combined numerical simulations, experiments and field research to uncover the driving mechanism of hexagonal crust patterns in salt deserts. During her PhD, Jana also spearheaded the effort to develop and implement the Data Literacy teaching curriculum at her university.
Her current research activity is focused on the analysis of disease risk and emotion dynamics from several big longitudinal data sets. Besides her research work, Jana is an active proponent of open science practices and an open knowledge fellow of the Wikimedia foundation.
