Research Projects

I am always interested to hear from well qualified prospective research students (particularly PhD students) who are interested in working in Computational Statistics and Probability. Below are some examples of projects I am currently interested in offering, and which might be interesting to study. Feel free to suggest other projects you may be interested in (although be aware I may not!), and contact me directly at m dot pollock at warwick dot ac dot uk.
