Chris Hickey


I'm a second year PhD student in Warwick's Department of Computer Science, supervised by Graham Cormode. I did my undergrad (MMath) across the bridge, in the Warwick Mathematics Institute.

My research involves verification of data analysis algorithms, whereby we have a solution provided by a powerful computer, and we wish to verify the result using minimal resources. More specifically, we're looking into algorithms regarding dimensionality reduction of large matrices, using methods such as principal component analysis, that allow us to verify the result using constant memory.
