Sebastian Schmon,

DPhil (Oxon)

Welcome to my webpage. I am an Assistant Professor in Statistics at Durham University and a Research Scientist in the Research team at Improbable. My research interests lie at the intersection of statistics, machine learning and probability theory as well as applications to the sciences. In particular, I am interested in constructing and analysing practical algorithms and simulation techniques for complex statistical or machine learning models such as intractable Bayesian models or large scale simulation engines. A list of publications can be found below. I obtained my DPhil (Oxford parlance for PhD) at the Department of Statistics of the University of Oxford under the supervision of Arnaud Doucet and George Deligiannidis.

As a consultant with several years of experience I have supported start-ups as well as large multinational companies to improve their analytical capabilites.
