Luka Biedebach

Luka Biedebach first joined the Sleep Revolution in 2021  to write her master thesis on identifying paediatric mouth breathing during sleep. During this time, she created an unsupervised reconstruction-based anomaly detection model that classifies breathing sequencesShe then graduated from the University of Mannheim with a Master Degree in Data Science in 2022. Exploring all the possibilities of applying machine learning in sleep research raised her interest to dive deeper into this field.  

In 2022 she came back to Reykjavik University as Ph.D. Candidate within the Sleep Revolution. Her research focus is on unsupervised machine learning in sleep research. She currently researches on applying unsupervised learning on sleep EEGs and sleep quality measurements from wearable sensors.
