Supervision


    PhD students (main and co-supervision)

    September 2020-ongoing: main supervisor for Petar Jovanovski (Chalmers University). Petar is involved with simulation-based Bayesian inference and deep learning for stochastic modelling.
    2017-2021: main supervisor for Samuel Wiqvist (Lund University). He worked on Bayesian inference for intractable likelihoods, using particles-based methods (sequential Monte Carlo), approximate Bayesian computation and deep learning strategies using normalising flows. His PhD thesis is entitled "Simulation-based Inference: From Approximate Bayesian Computation and Particle Methods to Neural Density Estimation", and here are his papers.
    Samuel's research was partially funded by a grant from the Swedish National Research Council.
    current co-supervision: I am co-supervising Sebastian Persson (main sv: Marija Cvijovic), Konstantinos Konstantinou (main sv: Aila Särkkä) and Gustav Lindwall (main sv: Philip Gerlee).
