Dr Christian Hennig awarded EPRSC standard research grant

Dr Christian Hennig was awarded an EPSRC standard research grant for work on "A multicriterion approach to cluster validation". In this research, Dr Hennig will look at the notoriously difficult problem of estimating the number of clusters from a fresh angle, connecting criteria properly to different research aims. The project includes collaborations with the robust clustering group of the University of Valladolid led by Prof Carlos Matran, the expert for biological species delimitation Dr Bernhard Hausdorf, University of Hamburg, the IFCS cluster benchmarking initiative led by IFCS president Prof Iven van Mechelen, KU Leuven and Dr Hennig's former PhD student Dr Pietro Coretto, University of Salerno.
