Gareth Roberts elected as a Fellow of the Royal Society
Professor Gareth Roberts, whose research on advanced methods in computational statistics is enormously influential, has been recognised by the Royal Society through election as a Fellow:
New Fellows of the Royal Society announced for 2013
Many congratulations to Gareth!!
Wilfrid Kendall has won an EPSRC grant to develop the fundamental probability technique of coupling
The grant, EP/K013939/1 "Probabilistic coupling and nilpotent diffusions" will fund a probability PDRA in Statistics for 3 years, and has value £294233.
Julia Brettschneider, Wilfrid Kendall, and Thomas Nichols have won an EPSRC grant to develop statistics for 3-d printing
The grant, EP/K031066/1 "Inside-out: Statistical methods for Computed Tomography validation of complex structures in Additive Layer Manufacturing" is held together with WMG colleagues Mark Williams and Greg Gibbons as well as three industrial partners. It will fund a PDRA in Statistics for three years, and has value £498109. It concerns Additive Layer Manufacturing (ALM, or "3-d printing"), which develops products directly from their digital design data by the layer-wise addition of material. Our ambition is to develop effective process control based on Computed Tomography data.
