EPSRC grant success for Aleks Mijatovic
Aleks Mijatovic, with colleagues at the University of Durham has been successful in winning an EPSRC grant worth over £1 million to develop novel robust probabilistic techniques for the analysis of certain multidimensional diffusion processes exhibiting non-Markovian and/or reflecting behaviour and possessing universal features. The grant will fund postdoctoral researchers at both Warwick and Durham.
Mark Steel has been appointed as the new Editor-in-Chief of the journal Bayesian Analysis for a term of three years.
Krys Latuszynski awarded additional funding in support of his Royal Society University Research Fellowship.
EPSRC New Investigator Award for Tom Berrett
Congratulations to Dr Tom Berrett who has been awarded an EPSRC New Investigator Award for the project "A suite of new nonparametric methods for missing data and data from heterogeneous sources based on the theory of Frechet classes".
