Voice as a biomarker for neurodegenerative diseases: machine learning and neuroscience in one PhD

Many of us researchers are enticed by the idea of working in data science. More and more new opportunities are cropping up for applying our hard-earned scientific knowledge to problems that people are willing to pay to solve. Pascal Hecker, a former Neuroscience student from Göttingen, talks about his journey from academia to industry to a combination of both at audEERING - a company that uses machine learning to dissect voice patterns as markers for neurodegenerative diseases.


The prerequisites of productivity

Being masters of our own work schedule means we need to take extra care to stay on top of our tasks, and avoid falling into an abyss of extra-long lunches and obscure Wikipedia links. Dimokratis Karamanlis and Tal Dankovich share some important prerequisites for working productively and why you should implement these in your routine.


Four Rules for Better Data Visualization in Science

When we read good publications or see an impressive talk, we often overlook the fact that a lot of successful scientific communication can be contributed to good Data Visualization. Knowing how to successfully transform a scientific message into a graphic is a profitable skill (to say the least). Salma Sohrabi-Jahromi, a PhD in the Computational Biology group at the MPIbpc shares four rules for good visualization of scientific data.


How I use Mendeley to organize my papers

With the flood of literature we're exposed to during a Phd, finding and organizing papers becomes a science in itself. We've all developed our own protocols for managing references, but it's important to make sure that they actually save us time in the long term rather than wasting it. Tal Dankovich shares her system for managing papers using Mendeley and some tips on using the app.
