Dr Thomas Berrett

I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Statistics, University of Warwick. Until July 2020, I was a postdoctoral researcher at CREST, ENSAE, Institut Polytechnique de Paris supervised by Prof. Cristina Butucea. Until August 2019 I was postdoctoral researcher supervised by Prof. Richard J. Samworth, in the Statistical Laboratory, a subdepartment of the Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics at the University of Cambridge, and was affiliated with the StatScale programme.

My research interests are mainly in developing statistical theory and methodology in nonparametric settings. Problems I have worked on include the estimation of entropy and other functionals, (conditional) independence testing and classification. I am also particularly interested in the application of nearest neighbour methods and permutation tests. Please see my personal webpage for more information and for a list of publications.
