For more details and on line application see here

University of East Anglia

School: Computing Sciences
Supervisor(s): Dr Aristidis K. Nikoloulopoulos
Application Deadline: November 19th 2010

Funding may be available for UK/EU students. If funding is awarded for this project it will cover tuition fees and stipend for UK students. EU students may be eligible for full funding, or tuition fees only, depending on the funding source. International students will not be eligible for this funding however they are still welcome to apply for this project but would have to find alternative funding.

Project Description:

This project will focus on dependence modeling with copulas for non-normal multivariate/longitudinal response data. Such data abound in many applications including insurance, risk management, finance, biology, health and environmental sciences with different dependence structures including features such as tail dependence or negative dependence. Our goal is to develop parametric families of copulas, see for example Nikoloulopoulos and Karlis (2009); Joe et al. (2010); Nikoloulopoulos et al. (2009, 2011), that are appropriate as models for multivariate data and special estimation methods, see for example Zhao and Joe (2005), to overcome computational complexities imposed by some existing families.
