Applications are invited for our EPSRC funded Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) PhD studentships that will support six (6) research projects starting 1 October 2022. One of these projects is “Topological invariants of random geometric complexes in the dense limit” led by Dr Xiaochuan Yang in the Department of Mathematics
Motivated by applications in topological data analysis, we are interested in characterising limiting behaviour of topological invariants of simplicial complexes built from data points in either a Euclidean space, or a submanifold thereof, when the intensity of points goes to infinity. Theoretical findings will be complemented by empirical data analysis in collaboration with our industrial partner.
You should have a background in Probability/Statistics and/or Topology. It would be advantageous to have experience or interest in Algorithms. You should be a highly motivated individual and possess a strong sense of curiosity. The ability to study independently, think critically and collaborate with others is essential.
