Xuewen Yu

I am a fourth year PhD student in the CDT programme jointly held by the University of Warwick and the University of Oxford (OxWaSP). I am supervised by Professor Jim Smith (Warwick) and Professor Geoff Nicholls (Oxford).

Before joining this programme, I finished my undergraduate degree in MORSE at Warwick University and a Master degree in Applied Statistics at Oxford University.

My research focuses on Bayesian Natural Language Processing, combining with survival analysis, and its application in machines' failure data. Currently I am working on Causality in Reliability system and causal Chain Event Graph (CEG).
