My name is Z. Sun, a 4th year PhD student at UCL. I am lucky to be supervised by Prof. F-X Briol and Prof. J-H Xue. My research is mainly funded by EPSRC and UCL jointly; and partially by The Alan Turing Institute.
In general, I am very interested in computational statistics and machine learning. I am also very interested in applications of statistics and machine learning.
