Dr Anthony Lee
Course Director, BSc Data Science degree.
Member, Warwick Data Science Institute.
Associate Member, Oxford-Man Institute of Quantitative Finance.
Associate Editor, Statistics and Computing.
I co-organize Algorithms & Computationally Intensive Inference, an informal reading/discussion group.
From 2011--2013, I was a CRiSM Research Fellow at the University of Warwick.
If you are interested in links between machine learning and computational statistics in the UK, please check out the Network on Computational Statistics and Machine Learning. There is currently a call for collaborative PDRA project proposals.
I am Course Director for the BSc Data Science degree.
2013/14: ST340: Programming for Data Science with Ben Graham.
2012/13: ST414: Advanced Topics in Statistics.
During term these are in C0.16 on
Wednesday: 4.30pm--5.30pm, and
Outside of term, please email me at anthony.lee [at] warwick.ac.uk to arrange an appointment. If you need to speak to me urgently or are unable to make one of these times for any reason then please email me and I will try to make alternative arrangements.
Personal tutees: please book a time to see me on Thursday, 23rd April or come to my office hours.
