Student Research

Our students are undertaking a wide range of research.  Here are some ‘five minute’ research presentations that will give you a flavour of the projects that some of them have been working on.   

Statistical Models for Hotspot Detection by Andrea Brizzi, Imperial.

5 Minute Research: ‘Your Brain Is More Connected Than You Think’ by Anna Menacher, Oxford.

5 Minute Research: ‘Are You Driving the COVID-19 Epidemic?’  by Melodie Monod, Imperial. 

5 Minute Research: ‘Improving Google’s Cookies’ by Jose Pablo Falck, Imperial.


Students across the cohort have been producing some great research, many of them turning their focus to COVID related projects.  Here are a few links to publications from some of our students.
