An engineer's dive into Oxford Applied Maths, and becoming faculty at a Medical School

24 November 2016
Athanasios Tsanas

In this talk, I am reflecting on the last 8 extremely enjoyable years I spent in the department (DPhil, OCIAM, 2008-2012, post-doc, WCMB, 2012-2016). My story is a little unusual: coming from an Engineering undergraduate background, spending 8 years in the Maths department, and now moving to a faculty position at the Medical School. However, I think it highlights well the enormous breadth and applicability of mathematics beyond traditional disciplinary boundaries. I will discuss different projects during my time in Oxford, focusing on time-series, signal processing, and statistical machine learning methods, with diverse applications in real-world problems.
