    Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

Project Description

This project concerns the development of Markov chain Monte Carlo and sequential Monte Carlo methods for unbiased estimation in Bayesian inverse problems. Inverse problems typically involve inferring the initial condition of PDEs/ODEs on the basis of real data, naturally encapsulated by a Bayesian posterior distribution. Intrinsically, there is often a numerical solution of the PDE/ODE leading to bias in the posterior inference. In this project, we will develop, with only access to numerical solutions of the PDEs, Monte Carlo based methods which can remove the bias and be effective computational tools for inference. This project will develop skills in numerical analysis, probability, statistics and programming and leave the graduating student with an excellent skill set allowing him/her to progress further in academia or to find high quality jobs in industry.
