It is a great pleasure to welcome to Durham:
- Dr. Xianzhen Huang (Northeastern University, China), who will visit for
a year from September 2017 to collaborate on topics in reliability, in particular dynamic reliability optimisation.
- Yao Li (Chongqing University, China), a PhD student who will visit for one year from September 2017 to collaborate on topics in
reliability, in particular remaining life prediction for systems.
- Prof. Balakrishnan (McMaster University, Canada), who visited in February 2017 for
collaboration on topics related to the survival signature.
- Prof. Serkan Eryilmaz (Atilim University, Turkey), who visited
March-May 2017 for collaboration on topics in reliability theory.
- Dr. Filipe Marquez (Lisbon, Portugal), who visited in May 2017
for collaboration on reproducibility of tests.
I am supervising the following students at Durham (for PhD, unless mentioned differently), or they are due to start their studies as mentioned.
- Loic Cosyns: `Quasi-Bayesian inference with applications in finance' (part/time)
- Najla Qarmalah: `Mixture models and time series analysis for energy use data' (jointly supervised by Jochen Einbeck)
- Manal Alabdulhadi: `Direct nonparametric methods for setting diagnostic thresholds' (jointly supervised by Tahani Coolen-Maturi)
- Ting He: `Nonparametric predictive inference in finance'
- Junbin Chen: `Nonparametric predictive inference in finance' (jointly supervised by Tahani Coolen-Maturi)
- Abdullah Ahmadini: `Imprecise statistical methods for accelerated life testing'
- Aesha Najem: `Inventory control for spare parts in system reliability and resilience'
- Ali Mahnashi: `Nonparametric predictive inference for multiple future observations based on right-censored data' (jointly supervised by Tahani Coolen-Maturi)
- Andrea Mikulandova: `Reproducibility of statistical tests in pharmaceutical products development' (jointly supervised by Tahani Coolen-Maturi;
EPSRC-CASE project with AstraZeneca), to start October 2017
- Fatimah Alghamdi: `Reproducibility of statistical tests based on randomised response data' (jointly supervised by Tahani Coolen-Maturi), to start October 2017
- Ahmad Albaiti: `Imprecise statistical methods for the proportional hazards model' (jointly supervised by Peter Craig), to start October 2017.
These students have successfully completed their studies (PhD, unless mentioned differently) at Durham under my supervision.
I collaborate(d) with these students in part of their PhD (or MSc) research.
- Jacco Verheijen (1996) Combining two classical approaches for statistical selection (MSc at Eindhoven University of Technology (The Netherlands); Supervisor: Paul van der Laan; visiting student at Durham for 6 months)
- Fabio Spinato (2008) The reliability of wind turbines (PhD at Durham, Engineering Department, Supervisor: Peter Tavner)
- Gero Walter (2013) Generalized Bayesian inference under prior-data conflict (PhD at Munich University (Germany); Supervisor: Thomas Augustin)
- Geng Feng: working on imprecise system reliability using the survival signature (PhD at Liverpool University; supervised by Michael Beer and Edoardo Patelli)
- Yi-Chao Yin: working on accelerated life testing (University of Electronic Science and Technology of China, Chengdu (China); supervised by Hong-Zhong Huang; visiting student at Durham Oct 15 - Oct 16)
- Tien Thanh Thach: workinig on mixtures of failure rate models (PhD at Technical University of Ostrava (Czechia); supervised by Radim Bris)
- Yao Li: working on prediction of remaining life of systems (PhD at Chongqing University, China; visiting student at Durham Sept 17 - Sept 18)
I am married to Tahani Coolen-Maturi, who is a very strong researcher in Statistics and Lecturer in Statistics and Finance at the Durham University Business School.
My beloved wife Pauline died in 2008 - remember Pauline, she is with me.
