Dr Jaromir Sant

I am a Research Fellow at the Department of Statistics working on problems in inference for processes arising in mathematical population genetics.

I'm one of the organisers for the JTP Summer School "Stochastic Modelling in the Life Sciences" being held 9-13th of May 2022 at the Hausdorff Research Institute for Mathematics at the University of Bonn. Applications are open until the 31st of March!


My PhD focused on inference for diffusions in genetics under the supervision of Paul Jenkins, Jere Koskela and Dario Spanò. I graduated with a B.Sc in Mathematics and Statistics & OR (specialising in the latter) at the University of Malta in 2016, and completed Part III (MASt in Mathematical Statistics) at Cambridge in the following year.

Research Interests:

My research interests mainly revolve around probability and statistics. I am particularly interested in mathematical population genetics which aims to offer a mathematical framework within which to understand and explain how various biological phenomena propagate in nature. I am also interested in stochastic processes and Bayesian statistics in general and how these two fields complement one another to offer more flexible frameworks within which to model various real life processes.
