Available PhD Opportunities

Applications for the September 2024 cohort of UCL's CDT in Data Intensive Science (UCL CDT-DIS) are now open! We offer a 4-year PhD programme, at the intersection of Machine Learning / Artificial Intelligence & Physics, with multiple training & industrial placement opportunities!

I am offering 2 projects:
1) Exploring the interplay of machine learning model uncertainty quantification & model interpretability (applications: Exoplanetary Science, Medical Imaging), with Prof. Ingo Waldmann
2) Causal discovery & inference in astrophysics (applications: Cosmology, Exoplanetary Science), with Prof. Ofer Lahav
Anyone interested is welcome to apply and/or contact me for more details.

Student Supervision

I have (co-)supervised or I am currently (co-)supervising 7 PhD students, 26 MSc Students, 1 BSc student summer project & 3 industrial placement group projects involving 9 PhD students (listed below). Several of my students' projects have received prizes (4 MSc & 1 PhD) and/or led to publications, with more under preparation. Unless otherwise specified, all my students were from UCL P&A.

Students wishing more details added (project title, current affiliation, links etc.), please get in touch.
