I am interested in supervising highly motivated PhD students with a strong quantitative background in computational statistics and machine learning. Get in touch with me and apply directly via OxWaSP and/or WISC Doctoral Training Centers and/or The Alan Turing Institute. Some areas of interest are i) probabilistic spatio-temporal inference and algorithms, ii) learning and inference in dynamic systems and changing (non-stationary) environments iii) scalable approximate inference and learning algorithms.
Every year I will be proposing master's thesis projects at both Statistics and Computer Science departments. Contact me with your CV if interested in these. If you have a well defined project of your own that is close to my interests and would like me to supervise your thesis feel free to contact me with your CV and a project description.
