Sven is an expert ethologist, has taught biostatistics, experimental design, and behavioral biology at University of Konstanz, Humboldt University Berlin, and University of Zürich, and published on evolutionary behavioral and reproductive ecology, predominantly based on house mouse sociobiology and molecular genetics. He has been co-developing application software for fully automated behavioral apparatus such as IntelliCage and Phenomaster, at NewBehavior AG and TSE-Systems GmbH. He currently focuses on analysis of empirical and experimental data for medical diagnostics and academic scientists, using SAS, R, Python for inferential statistics (GLM(M), cancor), pattern identification (as in -omics like RNA seq), or machine learning (as…
Prof. Hans-Peter Lipp is Professor Emeritus at the University of Zürich and Visiting Professor at the University of Kwazulu-Natal in Durban, South Africa. He is familiar with behavioral neuroscience in many species, an expert in animal navigation, and developed automated learning systems. He had continuous grant support during his academic career, including coordination of EU grants, and is the founder of the company NewBehavior producing advanced behavioral apparatus. He is co-founder of learned societies and journals and has authored/co-authored over 170 publications in renowned journals including SCIENCE and NATURE. His specialty is recognizing novel conceptual and technical approaches.
David P. Wolfer
Prof. David P. Wolfer holds a double professorship at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zürich and at the University of Zürich, Switzerland. He has authored several papers on methods in rodent behavioral research (even in journals such as NATURE), has written complex software for behavioral data analysis (WINTRACK) and is associate editor of the journal Genes, Brain and Behavior. His specialty is translational research using transgenic mouse models.
Software engineer with advanced degree in Physics and a strong focus on scientific applications / automated data analysis. He developed numerous state-of-the-art software applications, which are used in behavioral research like automated measuring and shaping of animal behavior (IntelliCage, IntelliMaze, etc). He is the creator of FlowR: unique desktop application tailored to interactive data analysis and visualisation using R language (an alternative approach similar to RStudio Shiny framework). The solution is designed to organise data processing workflows and run R tasks by the users without any knowledge of R and/or statistics.
