G-Research September grant winners
Each month, we provide up to £2,000 in grant money to early career researchers in quantitative disciplines.
Our aim is to support and assist PhD students and postdocs conducting research, particularly with costs that may be difficult to get funding for elsewhere, for example, travel for those who are caring for children, or expenses for volunteer work related to research.
Read on to hear from our latest winners, their research and how our grants will aid their work.
September grant winners
“My primary research interests focus on statistical and machine learning methodologies for time-series analysis and modelling of financial (cryptocurrency and commodity), text (news, policy, regulation), environmental and epidemiological data.
“I am particularly interested in pursuing interdisciplinary approaches for addressing real-world challenges in the aforementioned fields, aiming primarily for high-performance, efficient, and transparent solutions based on statistically rigorous methodologies.
“The G-Research grant will support my research visit at University of California in Santa Barbara, where I have been invited by Prof. Dr. Gareth W. Peters. I will also give a talk at the 2022 Workshop of the Center for Financial Mathematics & Actuarial Research, alongside world experts in financial mathematics from academia and the industry.”
Srinath Kailasa (UCL)
“I’m a PhD student in Computational Science at UCL, and interested in combining mathematics and software to study the natural world.
“This grant from G-Research will support in me as I expand my network in an upcoming trip to the United States, and advertise some of the ground-breaking work from our group to colleagues from across the world.”
Congratulations to our grant winners.
