Stefan Stein

I am a second year PhD student in the Department of Statistics, University of Warwick and work under the supervision of Prof. Chenlei Leng. I received my bachelor's and master's degree in mathematics from the University of Heidelberg, Germany.

I am on a Industrial Cooperative Awards in Science & Technology (ICASE) studentship and my funding is partially provided by Tata Steel.

Aside from Statistics and Data Science, I am interested in Blockchain technology and cyber security. If you would like to have a chat about these things, feel free to get in touch.

Research Interests

Together with Tata Steel I am working on process optimisation and machine learning topics for steel manufacturing. During the first year of my PhD I programmed the core of a guided analytics framework that allows the user to extract relevant manufacturing parameters from a data set, find their optimal values and automatically produces a standardised report of the conducted analysis.

I am also interested in devising new methods for analysing large complex data sets that are high-dimensional or networked in nature. Currently I am researching a novel model for sparse networks that tries to combine methods from stochastic network theory with those of high-dimensional data analysis.
