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 […]

Dr. Mihai Cucuringu

Dr. Mihai Cucuringu finished his PhD in Applied and Computational Mathematics (PACM) at Princeton University in June 2012, where he was advised by Prof Amit Singer. His thesis was on the low-rank matrix completion problem and several distance geometry problems with applications to sensor network localization and three-dimensional structuring of molecules.  Dr. Cucuringu is a […]

Dr. Sarah Filippi

Dr. Sarah Filippi joined the Department of Statistics of Oxford University in June 2014. She previously held a Medical Research Council Fellowship (2011-2104) in the Theoretical Systems Biology group at Imperial College London where she worked on a range of topics in computational statistics focused on understanding biological processes and their relation to disease. Prior […]

Dr. Scott A. Hale

Dr. Scott A. Hale is a Faculty Fellow with expertise spanning the social and computational sciences. His research focuses on knowledge discovery, data mining, and the visualization of human behaviour in three substantive areas: multilingualism and user experience, mobilization/collective action, and human mobility. As digital technologies, mobile phones, the Internet, and social media become increasingly […]

Dr Heather Harrington

Dr Heather Harrington is a Royal Society University Research Fellow in Applied Mathematics. Her research focuses on the problem of reconciling models and data by extracting information about the structure of models and the shape of data. To develop these methods, Dr Harrington integrates techniques from a variety of disciplines such as computational algebraic geometry […]

Dr. Bernie Hogan

Bernie Hogan’s research focuses on the creation, maintenance and analysis of personal social networks, with a particular focus on the relation between online and offline networks. Hogan’s work has demonstrated the utility of visualization for network members, how the addition of new social media can complicate communication strategies, and how the uneven distribution of media […]

Varun Kanade is a Research Lecturer in the Department of Computer Science, Oxford University. He has been a Simons Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of California, Berkeley and an FSMP postdoctoral fellow at ENS, Paris. He obtained his Ph.D. from Harvard University in 2012. His research interests are in machine learning and theoretical computer science. […]

Dr. Vidit Nanda

Dr Vidit Nanda is currently a post-doctoral researcher in mathematics at the University of Pennsylvania. Before coming to Penn, he received his PhD (also in mathematics) from Rutgers School of Arts and Sciences. Dr Nanda develops theories, algorithms and software for algebraic-topological analysis of large data sets, which arise from simulations or measurements made in […]

Dr. Neave O’Clery

Originally from Dublin, Neave O’Clery is currently a Senior Research Fellow at the Mathematical Institute at the University of Oxford. She was previously a Fulbright Scholar and Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Center for International Development at the Harvard Kennedy School following her PhD (mathematics) at Imperial College. Neave is also founder and Editor in […]

Nina Otter

Nina Otter is a 2nd year DPhil in Mathematics in the Topology and Mathematical Biology research groups. Her research focuses on using methods from pure mathematics (such as algebraic topology, algebraic geometry and category theory) to study data. Before coming to Oxford she studied mathematics at the ETH Zürich.
