It is a great pleasure to welcome to Durham:
- Prof. Balakrishnan (McMaster University, Canada), who will visit 23 February 2017 to
collaborate on topics related to the survival signature.
- Prof. Serkan Eryilmaz (Atilim University, Turkey), who will
visit March-May 2017 to collaborate on topics in reliability theory.
- Dr. Filipe Marquez (Lisbon, Portugal), who will visit 7-11 May 2017
to collaborate on reproducibility of tests.
- 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.
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)
- Hana Alqifari: `Nonparametric methods for order statistics of future observations'
- 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)
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)
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.
