Thomas Haslwanter is a Professor at the Department of Medical Engineering of the University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria in Linz, and lecturer at the ETH Zurich in Switzerland. He also worked as a researcher at the University of Sydney, Australia and the University of Tuebingen, Germany. He has extensive experience in medical research, with a focus on the diagnosis and treatment of vertigo and dizziness and on rehabilitation. After 15 years of extensive use of Matlab, he discovered Python, which he now uses for statistical data analysis, sound and image processing, and for biological simulation applications. He has been teaching in an academic environment for more than 10 years.
"This book is a timely addition designed to bridge the gap between statisticians/computer scientists and experimentalists (biologists, physicists, medical doctors) by focussing on solutions to practical problems ... . the book also provides hands-on examples and exercises for a better understanding (for which the solutions are included at the end of the book). This approach makes the book appealing to a wide audience ranging from undergraduates in various subjects to established researchers looking for a focused set of answers."
