Our third Cohort of Compass students have confirmed their PhD projects for the next 3 years and are establishing the direction of their own research within the CDT.
Supervised by the Institute for Statistical Science:
Ettore Fincato is working on the project: Functional Analysis of Markov Chain Monte Carlo Algorithms with supervisors Christophe Andrieu and Mathieu Gerber
Dominic Broadbent is working on the project: Data Reduction and Large-Scale Inference – Bayesian Coresets with supervisors Nick Whiteley and Robert Allison. This by project is co-funded and co-supervised the National Cyber Security Centre.
Ben Griffiths is working on the project: Faster model fitting for quantile additive models with supervisor Matteo Fasiolo. This project is co-funded and co-supervised by EDF Energy
Josh Givens is working on the project: Differential Model Inference with Imperfect Information with supervisors Song Liu and Henry Reeve.
Tennessee Hickling is working on the project: Flexible Tails for Normalising Flows with supervisor Dennis Prangle
Hannah Sansford is working on the project: Some new results in graph representation learning with supervisors Nick Whitely and Patrick Rubin-Delanchy.
The following projects are supervised in collaboration with the Institute for Statistical Science (IfSS) and our other internal partners at the University of Bristol:
Emerald Dilworth is working on the project: Using Web Data and Network Science to Detect Spatial Relationships with supervisors Emmanouil Tranos (Geographical Sciences) and Dan Lawson
Ed Milsom is working on the project: Deep kernel machines with supervisors Laurence Aitchison (Computer Science) and Song Liu
Harry Tata is working on the project: Novel semi-supervised Bayesian learning to rapidly screen new oligonucleotide drugs for impurities with supervisor Andrew Dowsey (Population Health Sciences). This project is funded and co-supervised by Astra Zeneca
Daniel Milner is working on the project: Spatial and Temporal Assessment of Vulnerability and Resilience in Semi-Arid Landscapes with supervisors Andrew Dowsey (Population Health Sciences), Levi Wolf (Geographical Sciences) and Kate Robson Brown (Engineering Mathematics). This project is co-funded and co-supervised by International Livestock Research Institute
