Alexander Kent

I am a second year PhD student in the Mathematics and Statistics CDT at the University of Warwick working under the joint supervision of Professor Yi YuLink opens in a new window and Dr Thomas BerrettLink opens in a new window. My current research concerns User-Level Local Differential Privacy.

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 JohansenLink opens in a new window.

Aside from academics, I enjoy archery with my bowstyle being longbow and am a member of the university archery clubLink opens in a new window. I am also a big fan of Touhou music, with my favourite circles being 凋叶棕 (Diao Ye Zong)Link opens in a new window and 魂音泉 (TamaOnSen)Link opens in a new window.
