G-Research 2024 PhD prize winners: Imperial College London

G-Research 2024 PhD prize winners: Imperial College London

Every year, G-Research runs a number of different PhD prizes in Maths and Data Science at universities in the UK, Europe and beyond.

Each prize is worth up to £10,000 and is open to final or penultimate year PhD students at specific universities, working across areas including Machine Learning, Quantitative Finance and Mathematics.

We’re pleased to announce the winners of the first prize of this year, run in conjunction with Imperial College London.

1st place: Aras Selvi

We’re proud to announce that Aras Selvi  was unanimously elected as the winner of our Imperial PhD prize.  Aras will receive £5,000.

Aras’ interests focus on the increasing influence artificial intelligence and machine learning-based algorithms have in decision making. He recognises that a lot of these algorithms are largely unconstrained. Constraints, however, are vital to guarantee fairness/ethics, interpretability, privacy and robustness of decisions and often make the underlying computational tasks intractable.

Therefore, in his research he formulates constrained data-driven decision making models to address various concerns and derive efficient algorithms to solve hard optimisation problems that frequently arise in such settings.

The prize money will enable Aras to attend major upcoming conferences and acquire advanced research equipment necessary for his work.

Our Runner-Ups

As well as awarding a first prize, we are proud to announce two runner-ups, with each receiving £2,500.

We run multiple PhD prizes every year across the UK, Europe and more.
