Carl Zinner is an applied mathematician working on various bioinformatics projects for the Department of Biomedicine, University of Basel, Switzerland. Within his role in the FTC project (link below), he helps with the analysis of large-scale biological data. Carl received his undergraduate degree from the University of Edinburgh and completed an exchange year at the University of California, San Diego. After obtaining his Master of Quantitative Finance in Sydney, he gained experience as a financial markets data scientist in Geneva. Thereafter he completed a PhD in theoretical physics at the chair of polymer physics and complex fluids at ETH Zurich. His thesis investigated numerical simulations of gas flows at extreme scales. These occur during the re-entry of space vehicles, but also at micro scales in the lung. Before joining the Covid-19 project he worked as an independent freelancer, utilizing his statistical and computational knowledge on machine learning and data projects.
