Speaker information

Dr Louis Aslett, Durham University. Louis' current primary research is at the interface between cryptography and statistics, with the focus on privacy preserving statistical analyses. His personal interest is on the statistics side of this fusion, developing novel statistical methodology which is amenable to use in the constrained environment of encrypted computation made possible by recent developments in homomorphic encryption. Louis' other main strand of research is in reliability theory, where interest is in the structural reliability of engineered systems, usually taken from a Bayesian perspective. He also have research interests in computational acceleration of Hidden Markov Models (HMMs) as used in genetics which result in intractable inference as population sizes grow. Threaded through all these research interests is a particular interest in modern massively parallel computing architectures such as GPUs and the development of statistical methodology which is amenable to implementation in such environments.
