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 here. 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 Gavin Whitaker 2017 - with Ricardo Silva | 2nd advisor
Dr Thomas Bartlett 2016 - with Ricardo Silva | host advisory team
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.
