Projects for prospective PhD students

Below is a list of a few topics that I am highly interested in and I am keen to research collaborating with a PhD student. Feel free to contact me if you are interested on any of those (please niclude a CV, a brief research statement, and an outline of the reasons you want to do a PhD with me). Information on the application process and on available funding opportunities can be found here. More opportunities for funding can be found at the UCL Scholarships and Funding website.

Optimal estimation and inference

  • Inference for models with many nuisance parameters (in progress)
  • The bias of functional estimators
  • Improved estimation for generalized linear mixed effects models (in progress)

Inferece from massive data sets

  • Estimation and inference in generalized linear models from massive data sets

Mixture models and applications

  • Model-based clustering with many variables

Applications in Sports (see also the pages of the Statistics in Sports and Health research group)

  • Statistical models for high-frequency health and fitness data in sports (in progress)
  • Injury prediction and prevention in Sports (in progress)

The above list is in no case exhaustive; if you have something else in mind and you are interested in working with me I would be more than happy to discuss.
