Dr Adam Johansen

Dr Adam Johansen is a Reader in Statistics; his research focuses upon methodological and theoretical aspects of simulation-based algorithms.
He is co-director of APTS.

Some documents relating to the current triennial valuation of the USS may be of interest.


Some generic teaching information - - applicable to my personal tutees, MSc students and those attending my lectures is available from my teaching page. This year I will be lecturing the following locally:

Further afield:


Students and Collaborators

Current interests include Monte Carlo methodology, particularly sequential methods together with Bayesian statistics and decision theory more generally.

Information about former students.

Prospective Ph.D. students should feel free to email me to discuss possible research directions and might find the theses of some of my former students (available by following the above link) useful indicators of the types of project in which I am typically involved. They may also be interested in the possibilities presented by Turing Institute Studentships.

Current Ph.D. Students:
