Rob ter Horst

Postdoctoral researcher

1. who studies the immune system using the computer. I specialise in bioinformatics, which means I study biology using machine learning and statistics.

2. who makes YouTube videos as "The Quantified Scientist", systematically testing smartwatches and health trackers.

3. who is life-logging everything. I am quite possibly doing the ultimate "quantified self", which means I measure everything in life. My measurements take more than 11 hours a week and include a weekly brain MRI, sleep EEG and gut microbiome composition. ​ Check out my YouTube channel if you want to know more!

I am a postdoctoral researcher 

at the Research Center for Molecular Medicine (CeMM)

I am a data-scientist who analyses immunological data for work, and data about myself and different wearables as a hobby. To make science more accessible to the public, I write blogs for "Faces of Science" and create vlogs about science on YouTube.  

I just started a Postdoctoral position at the CeMM Research Center for Molecular Medicine in Vienna Austria.
