Log-concavity, nearest-neighbour classification, variable selection and the Statistics Clinic

Date: 
Monday 26th September 2011 - 12:10 to 12:20
Venue: 
INI Seminar Room 1
Abstract: 
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.
