Alexander Kent

I am a first year PhD student in the Mathematics and Statistics CDT at the University of Warwick working under the joint supervision of Dr Yi YuLink opens in a new window and Dr Thomas BerrettLink opens in a new window. My current research concerns Local Differential Privacy for time series data.

Before starting the PhD programme I obtained a BA in Mathematics from the University of Cambridge in 2021 and an MSc in Statistics at the University of Warwick in 2022. My master's dissertation is titled "Limit Theorems for Sequential Adaptive Markov Chain Monte Carlo Methods" and was supervised by Professor Adam Johansen.

Aside from academics, I enjoy archery with my bowstyle being longbow and am a member of the university archery club. I am also a big fan of Touhou music, with my favourite music group being 凋叶棕 (Diao Ye Zong).
