- Hien Nguyen: Lecturer and Research Fellow, Department of Mathematics and Statistics, La Trobe University, Melbourne. Hien’s research focuses on construction of computationally efficient and feasible algorithms for the estimation of mixture-type models, such as via minorization-maximization algorithms or maximum pseudolikelihood estimation.
- Luke Prendergast: Associate Professor, Head of Department of Mathematics and Statistics, La Trobe University, Melbourne. Luke is an expert in dimensionality reduction techniques such as sliced inverse regression and single-index modelling.
- Natalie Karavarsamis: Lecturer and Research Fellow, Department of Mathematics and Statistics,
La Trobe University, Melbourne. Her research interests include ecological statistics, analysis and modelling of large biological data and medical statistics.
- Jessica Bagnall: PhD student, La Trobe University. Jessica is supervised by H. Nguyen until 2020 and is currently working on a project revolving around the development of Boltzmann machine networks for statistical inference, and the use of archetypal analysis and similar techniques for data quantisation, especially in neuroimaging. Jessica also provides insight into the interpretation of neuroimaging results, from her previous research and studies in psychology.
