Statistics and its Applications PhD projects

This page provides a (partial) list of specific (and not so specific) PhD projects currently offered around the Statistics and its Applications topic.

Identifying an interesting, worthwhile and do-able PhD project is not a trivial task since it depends crucially on the interests and abilities of the student (and the supervisor!) The list below therefore contains a mixture of very specific projects and fairly general descriptions of research interests across the School. In either case you should feel free to contact the potential supervisors to find out more if you're interested.

You should also explore the School's research groups' pages, and have a look around the homepages of individual members of staff to find out more about their research interests. You may also contact us for general enquiries.

Title

Optimal Experimental Designs

Group Statistics and its Applications
Supervisor
Description

The success of many experimental studies in Biology, Chemistry, Engineering, Experimental Physics, Material Science, Medicine, etc., depends on the experimental designs that are used to collect the data. The aim of this project is to develop novel statistical methods for constructing designs that have desirable statistical properties.

The applicants are expected to have deep knowledge in Statistics and Mathematics, as well as good computational skills. The focus of the project will be decided to suit the background and the strengths of the student.
