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 the University of Oxford.

1st place: Desi Ivanova

We’re proud to announce that Desi Ivanova was unanimously elected as the winner of our University of Oxford PhD prize. Desi will receive £10,000.

Desi is a final year DPhil student in the Department of Statistics at the University of Oxford. Her main research area is Bayesian Experimental Design, where she focus on developing scalable and efficient strategies for adaptive data acquisition.

Her research interests also extend to uncertainty quantification, amortised Bayesian inference, and causality.

Desi said: “The generous G-Research prize will primarily provide funding for computational resources and also support my travel to machine learning conferences.”
