Prof. Harald Oberhauser

Harald Oberhauser is an Associate Professor of Stochastic Analysis in the Mathematical Institute, a tutorial fellow at St. Hugh’s College, and an Associate Member of the Man-Institute for Quantitative Finance. He works on new mathematical approaches that can be used for statistical learning of systems that evolve under the influence of randomness. More generally, he […]

Prof. Alessandro Abate

Alessandro Abate is an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Oxford (UK). He received a Laurea in Electrical Engineering in October 2002 from the University of Padova (IT), an MS in May 2004 and a PhD in December 2007, both in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences, at UC Berkeley […]

Dr. Mariano Beguerisse Díaz

Mariano is a senior research fellow in the Mathematical Institute at the University of Oxford. His primary research interest is developing mathematical methods for the tractable representation of complex data systems. In particular, he is interested in directed networks, network inference, dynamics on/of networks, temporal networks, and going from meta-data to full-data descriptions. He develops […]

Prof. Francesco C. Billari

Professor Francesco C. Billari is a demographer and sociologist, who focuses on the study of life course dynamics and population change, in particular fertility and family change. Previous research includes the analysis of life course data as event histories, sequences of states; expert-based methods in population forecasting; agent-based models of population change. Recently, he has […]

Prof. François Caron

Prof. François Caron’s research interests lie in the development of statistical models and computational procedures for the analysis of structured data, with particular interest in Bayesian nonparametrics and Monte Carlo methods. His recent research focuses on building probabilistic models of network data which can capture the salient properties of real-world networks (sparsity, modularity), as well […]

Prof. Coralia Cartis

Assoc. Prof. Cartis’ research is on optimization, algorithm development, analysis and implementation for a variety of problem classes (linear, convex, nonconvex, smooth/nonsmooth, stochastic), suitable for large scale. In the past few years, her research focused on complexity of nonconvex optimization problems; compressed sensing; parameter estimation for climate modelling. Currently, she is investigating optimization methods for […]

Corinne Cath

Corinne J.N. Cath worked at the intersection of Internet governance, tech-policy, ethics and human rights for various years. She joined the Oxford Internet Institute in 2015 as an MSc student. Her MSc research at the OII focused on the (im)possibility of instantiating human rights principles in Internet standards and protocols. Before coming to Oxford she […]
