Log-concavity, nearest-neighbour classification, variable selection and the Statistics Clinic
Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute
I will give a brief overview of some of my current research interests. These include log-concave density estimation and its applications, optimal weighted nearest neighbour classification, and the use of subsampling to improve high-dimensional
variable selection algorithms. Finally, I will advertise the Statistics Clinic,
http://www.statslab.cam.ac.uk/clinic which meets fortnightly during term, and
where anyone in the university can obtain free statistical advice.
