Tobias Wolfram

PhD Candidate

University of Bielefeld/CREST-ENSAE

I am a PhD-candidate in sociology at University of Bielefeld and affiliated with CREST-ENSAE as well as the awesome people at Social Science Genetics Paris. My research interests mostly concern the intersection of social science, differential psychology and genetics. The pathways that lead from the genome, through cognitive and non-cognitive traits, ultimately to the stratification of society, never cease to amaze and captivate me.

Before commencing my PhD I worked three years as a data scientist and statistician for Civey, a German startup, where I still consult part time. I owe to this job a fascination for the possibilities and potentials of data science and machine learning in the social sciences that goes beyond my other research interests.

In my spare time I am involved with various projects relating to the ideas of Evolutionary Humanism and Effective Altruism.
