Odysseas Sclavounis

I am currently a PhD candidate at the Oxford Internet Institute, looking at the governance and development of public blockchains. I am also a doctoral student at the Alan Turing Institute, where I have received a Turing Studentship. Prior to my PhD, I completed an MSc on the Social Science of the Internet at the […]

Prof. Dino Sejdinovic

Assoc. Prof. Dino Sejdinovic is broadly interested in statistical foundations underpinning large-scale machine learning algorithms, with a particular emphasis on nonparametric and kernel methods, and the resulting expressive models. Recent research focused on methods for discovery of higher-order interactions in datasets (when weak individual causes combine in a nonlinear way to form a strong effect), […]

Joe Shaw

Joe’s DPhil research is examining disruption and innovation within the ‘PropTech’ industry. In particular, he is interested in the market effects of platforms that promise heightened accuracy and efficiency in the property valuation process. His research seeks to explain how such technologies are transforming property market practices, and how this is affecting different processes and […]

Dr. Mariarosaria Taddeo

Dr. Mariarosaria Taddeo Researcher – Oxford Internet Institute, University of Oxford and Faculty Fellow at the Alan Turing Institute. Her recent work focuses mainly on the ethical analysis of cyber security practices and information conflicts. Her area of expertise is Information and Computer Ethics, although she has worked on issues concerning Philosophy of Information, Epistemology, […]

Prof. Jared Tanner

Prof. Tanner’s research concerns extracting models of high dimensional date which reveal of the essential information in the data.  Specific contributions include the derivation of sampling theorems in compressed sensing using techniques from stochastic geometry and the design and analysis of efficient algorithms for matrix completion which minimise over higher dimensional subspaces as the reliability of the data warrants. […]

Prof. Ulrike Tillmann

Prof. Ulrike Tillmann FRS has been at the University of Oxford since 1992. She is an algebraic topologist, known in particular for her work on Riemann surfaces and the homology of their moduli spaces. She has long standing research interest in homology stability questions. In 2011 she introduced an annual course (with Abramsky) in Computational […]

Efthymia Tsamoura

Efthymia Tsamoura received her BSc in 2007 and her PhD in 2013 with honours both from the Computer Science Department of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece. Before staring her PhD studies, Efthymia worked on problems related to multimedia analysis as a research staff of the Centre for Research and Technology Hellas. Since June 2013 she […]
