About the project
Techniques and Overview
In the intricate world of statistical analysis, accurately understanding the variance of temporally correlated data is crucial for reliable conclusions. However, traditional methods often stumble, especially when faced with limited or densely interconnected data samples.
Dr Jiajing Sun, an Associate Professor at the School of Mathematics at the University of Birmingham, is inviting a promising PhD student for a collaborative project to advance time series analysis using an adjusted-range based self-normalisation technique.
Drawing inspiration from Shao (2010)'s foundational work, our research team proposes a unique self-normalisation method that leverages the adjusted sample range of a partial sum process. This comprehensive approach aims to refine theoretical statistical frameworks while empirically testing its efficacy across diverse applications.
