Ian Roberts

I am a third year PhD student in the Warwick Maths and Stats Centres of Doctoral Training (CDT) under the supervision of Xavier DidelotLink opens in a new window, Jere KoskelaLink opens in a new window and Richard EverittLink opens in a new window. I am currently working on Bayesian inference for structured coalescent models and applying computational models to infer evolutionary parameters.

I co-organised the Research Students Conference in Population Genetics with Alicia GillLink opens in a new window, which was held at the University of Warwick at the end of June 2022. The conference website is still available here.


I completed a BA in Mathematics (2-I) from the University of Cambridge in 2019, and a MSc in Statistics (with Distinction) from the University of Warwick in 2020.
