Young Researchers' Meeting


The Young Researchers' meeting (YRM) is a weekly seminar for postgraduate students and postdocs. It provides an informal forum where we discuss our research and exchange ideas. We usually start the meeting with a presentation on a topic from or related to statistics or probability, which is followed by a discussion over tea, coffee and biscuits (and sometimes cake).

Everyone is welcome to attend. Meetings take place on Tuesdays during term time in the Statistics Common Room at 4 pm unless otherwise advertised.

The organizers for the 2019–2020 academic year are Suzie Brown and Marco Palma.
