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 […]

Prof. Charlotte Deane

Prof. Charlotte Deane’s group works in the protein bioinformatics area. Currently the research focuses on understanding protein structure and improving our ability to model and design proteins. To this end, the group is developing a rigorous definition of evolutionary relationships between proteins of differing structures using, in the initial stages, genomic data and building novel […]

Prof. George Deligiannidis

Professor Deligiannidis studied Mathematics (MMath) at the University of Warwick and Financial Mathematics (MSc) at Heriot-Watt University and the University of Edinburgh. After obtaining his PhD from the School of Mathematical Sciences of the University of Nottingham, he moved to the Department of Mathematics of the University of Leicester as a Teaching Assistant/Fellow. In 2012 […]

Prof. Arnaud Doucet

Prof. Arnaud Doucet’s research concerns numerical methods for the analysis of complex data sets. In particular, he has contributed to the development and study of sequential Monte Carlo and Markov chain Monte Carlo methods.
