Suzie Brown

I am a fourth year OxWaSP student supervised by Dr Adam Johansen and Dr Jere Koskela. I am working on theoretical aspects of sequential Monte Carlo (SMC) algorithms. My current focus is on describing the particle genealogies induced by various resampling schemes.

Before coming to Warwick, I studied Mathematics at the University of Bristol.
