Theory, methods and applications of Statistical Science for 21st Century data-intensive environments and large-scale models

Lead Research Organisation: University of Oxford
Department Name: Statistical Science CDT


Due to the nature of the Centre for Doctoral Training, students will not embark on their main research project until the beginning second year of the programme.

In the first year, students will receive teaching in core areas in the form of 8 two-week modules on the following topics:
Computational Statistics & Statistical Computing
Probability & Approximation
Stochastic Simulation
Network Analysis
Machine Learning
Bayesian Inference
Applied Statistics
Time Series & Stochastic Processes

Following this, the students undertake two mini-projects before choosing their DPhil supervisor.

The DPhil project will fall within the EPSRC statistics and applied probability research area.
