Trained as a theoretical physicist at ETH, Philipp Schütz started working in data science during his PhD Thesis in theoretical biophysics at the University of Zurich working on the interpretation of single-molecule experiments. In his postdoctoral stay at EMPA, he switched the field towards the analysis of computed tomography images. In 2014, Philipp became a lecturer at HSLU and switched to the application of data science in the Energy context.
