Our regular seminar program covers a broad range of topics from applied mathematics, pure mathematics and statistics. All staff and students are welcome. This page has a complete list of past seminars and a list restricted by year can be accessed via the left-hand menu.

Matt Moores - University of Wollongong
The planned Mars 2020 mission to Jezero crater will include a rover equipped with 2 Raman spectrometers: SuperCam and SHERLOC. This would be the first time that this type of spectroscopy has been...

Dr. Dorota Toczydlowska - University of Technology Sydney
We investigate a feature extraction approach that addresses the challenge of dimensionality reduction in the presence of multivariate heavy-tailed and asymmetric distributions in complete and...

Rune Christiansen - University of Copenhagen
In statistical causality, we are interested not only in modeling the behaviour of a system that is passively observed, but also how the system reacts to changes in the data generating mechanism....

Munir Hiabu - University of Sydney
Most nonparametric or machine learning solutions provide flexibility for fitting functions with a very general shape.The downside is that firstly, they need incredible amounts of data to achieve an...

Mr. Kelvin Hsu - University of Sydney
In likelihood-free settings where likelihood evaluations are intractable, approximate Bayesian computation (ABC) addresses the formidable inference task to discover plausible parameters of simulation...

Nadja Klein - Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin
Deep neural network (DNN) regression models are widely used in applications requiring state-of-the-art predictive accuracy. However, until recently there has been little work on accurate uncertainty...

Emily Wong - Victor Chang
The vast array of animal form and function has little to do with what genes are present in each species, but depends instead on how they are regulated. This information is unfurled as development...

Dr. Clara Grazian - UNSW Sydney
Many proposals are now available to model complex data, in particular thanks to the recent advances in computational methodologies and algorithms which allow to work with complicated likelihood...

Prof Frédéric Richard - Aix-Marseille Université
In this talk, I will review some statistical methods I developed for the analysis of the anisotropy orthe heterogeneity of image textures. I will present extended fractional Brownian field models...

Dr. Spiridon Penev - UNSW Sydney
I will present some of my recent research under the motto “`Think globally, fit locally". I will mostly stress on applications in robust density estimation but will also indicate applications in...
