Bio

Paul Jenkins is a Reader in Data Science at the University of Warwick, with a joint appointment in the Departments of Computer Science and Statistics. He obtained an MMath followed by a DPhil in statistics in 2008 from the University of Oxford. From 2008 to 2012 he was a postdoctoral researcher in the Computer Science Division at the University of California, Berkeley, before joining the University of Warwick in 2012 as a Harrison Early Career Assistant Professor.

Research interests

Paul's research covers computational statistics, machine learning, Bayesian nonparametric statistics, and inference from stochastic processes, with particular application to population genetics and other evolutionary models. At The Alan Turing Institute he is focusing on developing Monte Carlo methodology for application to complex, high-dimensional datasets, and developing models of disease progression using time-series health data.
