I am a part-time PhD student in my third year of research in the Artificial Intelligence group at the University of York and I work under the supervision of Dr. James Cussens.
My research topic is about "Statistical Inference of Dynamical Systems with Application to Modelling Fish Population", which includes many aspects of Bayesian inference and time-series analysis.
- Literature review seminar: presented to YCCSA on 12th Spetember 2011.
- Literature review survey presented to York Cancer Research Unit on 3rd November 2011.
- Presentation to the YCCSA on 12th July 2012.
- Presentation to the AIG group on 20th February 2013.
- Maximum likelihood and Bayesian methods to identify and quantify heteroscedasticity in fisheries. [in progress - March 2013]
List of datasets analysed in "Maximum likelihood and Bayesian methods to identify and quantify heteroscedasticity in fisheries" is available here.
Density plots analysing the "Maximum likelihood and Bayesian methods to identify and quantify heteroscedasticity in fisheries" for illustrating the distribution of the coefficient of heteroscedasticity using frequentist (quasi-Newton) and Bayesian (Hamiltonian Monte Carlo) methods appied on the 257 fish populations.
R code implementing the "Maximum likelihood and Bayesian methods to identify and quantify heteroscedasticity in fisheries" described in the AOAS 2013 paper is available here.
This download includes everything required to reproduce results in the paper where the analysis is applied on 257 fish populations. It includes the datasets and a README.txt file within the download for instructions.
Prior to that, I completed my MSc degree from the University of Manchester, with distinction. My thesis was about Learning the correspondence between images and sounds of talking faces. The obtained generative model does not make use of labels, clustering or any other conventional technique. However, it is based on an unsupervised probabilistic learning. The following is an example of a synthesised animation, given speech, compared to Real Video.
