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.
