Research students

Prospective PhD students

Feel free to contact me directly if you are interested in doing a PhD with me as your supervisor. Please include a CV, a brief research statement, and an outline of the reasons you want to do a PhD with me.

A few example areas, various aspects of which I am currently interested in exploring with PhD students include:

  • Asymptotic methods for improved inference in modern modelling scenarios
    (e.g. high-dimensional models, functional regression, etc.)
  • Dynamic and scalable estimation methods in exponential family models
  • Missingness in regression and misclassification

The above list is in no way exhaustive and I am happy to discuss any suggestions and ideas you may have.

Information about doing a PhD in the Department of Statistics at University of Warwick, the application process and funding opportunities can be found at the Department of Statistics webpages. You may also consider applying for a Doctoral Studentship under my supervision at the Alan Turing Institute. Calls for applications and application details usually appear here.

Post-Doctoral Research Associates

Feel free to also contact me if you are interested in doing post-doctoral work with me. Please include a CV, a brief description of your research plans, and an outline of the reasons you want to work with me. Apart from posts that I may be advertising occasionally, there is typically a range of funding opportunities that can be explored for post-doctoral appointments, both ad-hoc and by submitting proposals to research councils. If you are interested in the latter, the earlier that you contact me before your intended start date the better.

Below is a list of post-doctoral research associates who are or have been working with me.

Dr Thomas Bartlett 2016 - with Ricardo Silva | host advisory team
Dr Gavin Whitaker 2017 - 2019 with Ricardo Silva | 2nd advisor
Dr Hannah Frick 2015 - 2017

More information on supervision of post-doctoral research associates, PhD students, and BSc/MSc project students can be found in my CV.
