Jack Simons

I graduated in 2019 from the University of Bristol with a First-Class Honours degree (MSci) in Mathematics. After graduating I moved to Colombia where I co-founded a Web Development business. I have just started my first year at Bristol’s Computational Statistics and Data Science CDT, Compass. My previous research has been in Population Genetics, where I have applied Stochastic Analysis with Monte Carlo Methods. However, beyond these areas , I am generally interested in solving real-world problems with computational statistics.

I have recently began a project, supervised by Song Liu and Mark Beaumont, entitled ‘Approximate Bayesian Inference by Density Ratio Estimation’ in which we seek to propose a novel method for likelihood inference.
