Bill studied pure maths at Warwick but has been tiptoeing towards the ‘applied side’ ever since.
Bill studied pure maths at Warwick but has been tiptoeing towards the ‘applied side’ ever since. At Warwick Bill’s research project was on percolation theory, and after this he did a project on graph embeddings and modelling network data in Bristol, for which he gained an MSc. Any probabilistic or statistical problem with a discrete flavour is very likely to appeal to Bill. But he’s also highly interested in machine learning (particularly from a more statistical perspective) and hopes to deepen his understanding of numerical analysis while part of SAMBa.
Bill’s interests outside of maths are quite typical among those interested in maths: he plays piano (lots of Bach); and really enjoys bouldering, reading, and pubs. Bill likes surreal humour and his favourite surreal film is ‘Film Film’ (1982).
