Research interests

I am a fourth year PhD student at the University of Cambridge, Department of Engineering, Signal Processing and Communications group. My research interest lies in the Bayesian approach to statistical inference. So far I have worked on alpha-stable distributions, a class of heavy-tailed distributions that describe phenomena with extreme values. The main challenge is the lack of closed-form mathematical expressions. I have first proposed a method to estimate the latter, based on algorithms for intractable likelihood problems. I am currently working on modeling time series driven by such alpha-stable noise.


About us

The Cambridge Big Data Strategic Research Initiative brings together researchers from across the University to address challenges presented by our access to unprecedented volumes of data. Our research spans all six Schools of the University, from the underlying fundamentals in mathematics and computer science, to applications ranging from astronomy and bioinformatics, to medicine, social science and the humanities

In parallel, our research addresses important issues around law, ethics and economics, in order to apply Big Data to solve challenging problems for society.

Cambridge Big Data supports collaboration and knowledge transfer in this growing field.
