EPSRC grant for Advanced Stochastic Computation for Inference from Tree, Graph and Network Models

PI: M. De Iorio; CO-I A. Beskos, D. Balding, A. Jasra

The main objective is to develop and characterise principled approximations to complex statistical models.

The research work aims to reduce both the variance of simulation-based estimates, and the computational time of stochastic algorithms. This will facilitate the implementation of stochastic models in real biological applications. The grant will support a postdoctoral researcher for three years.
