Privacy Researcher at Statice


Statice is a Berlin-based software company focussed on building technologies for large-scale data anonymization. Organizations need data to research, monitor, and innovate, but we don’t believe that should come at any price. We bridge the need for data and the implementation of data privacy by providing a state of the art data-anonymization software, which works by learning the patterns inherent in private data sets and recreating new, synthetic data sets with similar structure and statistical content, but no private data. We do this because we believe in the data-driven future, and we believe it is critical to leverage technology as a means for good. Statice is the safeguard of the individual’s privacy and technological enabler for companies to unlock the true potential of their data.
