EPSRC PhD in Computational Statistics and Data Science is now recruiting for its next available fully-funded home fees places to start September 2022.
We will be prioritising applicants who wish to work with the following potential supervisors:
Professor Nicky Welton – Professor Welton works in the the department of Population Health Sciences in the Bristol Medical School. Her work as a Compass supervisor can include supervision in the areas of Medical Statistics and Health Economics, in particular methods for combining evidence from multiple sources to answer healthcare policy questions.
Dr Sidarth Jaggi – Dr Jaggi is an Associate Professor in the Institute of Statistical Science and a Turing Fellow. His Compass PhD supervision can cover areas such as high-dimensional statistics, and robust machine learning.
Dr Rihuan Ke – Dr Ke is a Lecturer in the School of Mathematics. His research is on machine learning and mathematical image analysis. He has been developing statistical learning approaches and data-driven models for solving problems in computation and data science, and in particular for large scale image analysis. The typical approaches that he takes are to combine mathematical structures and statistical knowledge with modern deep learning techniques, to enable automatic analysis of the intrinsic structure of imaging data and exploiting rich information encoded in the data for the underlying tasks. In his projects, he is also interested in relevant applications in material sciences, medical imaging, and remote sensing. He is supervising PhD projects in deep learning, image analysis, and more generally data science.
