Professor Alex Cox is Deputy Head of the Department of Mathematical Sciences and is interested in research questions arising in probability and their applications in mathematical finance.
Lindsay Melling is involved in the operational aspects of the SAMBa CDT, including responsibility for the oversight, delivery and development of Integrative Think Tanks, partner liaison, marketing and dissemination.
Lou Adkin delivers the administrative support for SAMBa, oversees the admissions process, and supports programme delivery.
Dr Marcel Ortgiese is a senior lecturer in the Department of Mathematical Sciences. Marcel’s research interests are in probability theory, in particular in stochastic systems that involve a spatial or network component.
Dr Matt Nunes is a Reader in the Department of Mathematical Sciences. Matt is interested in the applications of multiscale methods and wavelets to various areas of statistics, such as the analysis of non-uniformly sampled data and images.
Dr Matthias Ehrhardt is a Reader in the Department of Mathematical Sciences and is interested in the mathematics of data science, particularly the interface of optimization, inverse problems and machine learning.
Dr Philippe Trinh is a lecturer in applied mathematics. Phil’s research is motivated by a range of physical applications in the applied sciences, with particular emphasis on fluid mechanics and classical hydrodynamics.
Dr Silvia Gazzola is a senior lecturer in the Department of Mathematical Sciences. Silvia is interested in regularization methods for inverse problems, with a particular focus on numerical linear algebra techniques and imaging applications.
Dr Susie Douglas oversees the strategic direction and operation of the SAMBa CDT. Susie works across University CDTs to add value to the research and training portfolio.
Dr Theresa Smith is a senior lecturer in the Statistics Group in the Department of Mathematical Sciences. Theresa’s research is in the areas of spatial-temporal models and computation for Bayesian methods.
Professor Tim Rogers is interested in understanding and predicting the behaviour of complicated random events and processes, in particular when there are network or spatial structures involved.
