Harita Dellaporta

I am a 2nd year CDT student in the Department of Statistics under the supervision of Prof. Theo Damoulas and a member of the Warwick Machine Learning Group. My research focuses around robust Bayesian inference and model misspecification. I am also interested in applications of robust methodologies in health and medical sciences.

Prior to starting my PhD, I completed an MSc in Computational Statistics and Machine Learning at UCL and a BSc in Mathematics at Warwick.

I co-organise the Warwick Machine Learning Group (WMLG) reading group.

My official name is Charita which is pronounced 'Harita' so I go by the latter.
