David Huk

I am a second-year PhD student in the CDT in Mathematics and Statistics at Warwick. I am jointly supervised by Dr Rito Dutta and Professor Mark Steel. My main research interests are Computational Statistics and Deep Generative Modeling.

Currently, I am working on Bayesian parameter-free prediction which bypasses the need for MCMC methods, and a second project developing a likelihood-free inference methodology for mixed effect models and their extensions.

Prior to my PhD studies, I obtained an Integrated Masters in MORSE from the University of Warwick. My dissertation was under the supervision of Dr Rito Dutta on the topic of probabilistic rainfall forecasting using Generalised Neural Models and Spatial Copulas (link), which we improved into a publication over the past year.
