Integrative Think Tank 12

ITTs take high level challenges from external partners and formulate them into mathematical questions that can be addressed through long-term research projects.

  • 7 Sep 2020, 9.00am to 11 Sep 2020, 3.00pm BST (GMT +01:00)
  • This is an online event.
  • This event is free
This event is invitation-only
Group discussion
Problem formulation at an ITT

ITT12 partners are Rolls Royce and Novartis

The partners bring a wide variety of statistical applied mathematics driven-challenges which, through facilitated group work and creation of small, mixed-expertise teams, will be re-formulated into large mathematical questions that can be taken forward as PhD projects. These include:

  • Modelling and Data integration in Pharmacokinetics models
  • Modelling uncertainty and missing data in longitudinal clinical trial data
  • Developing routes to enable effective selection in drug development for liver disease, though machine learning
  • Managing sensitive patient data with differential privacy algorithms
  • Understanding effective data collection for mapping complete aviation routes
  • Building mathematical models of engine deterioration caused by atmospheric contaminant, and quantify its impact on safety
  • Assessing the data collected from long flights and how it can be used effectively to infer the condition of the atmosphere and to understand the engine performance changes
