PhD applicantsPhD applications are welcome at any time. If you wish to apply to do a PhD with me as your supervisor, please read these guidance notes first, and then email me if you'd like to discuss your application further.
Current PhD students
- Younus Al-Taweel. Gaussian process emulators for computer experiments.
- Jeremy Colman. Prior elicitation in extreme value modelling.
I am also second supervisor to two PhD students in other departments :
