Fully Funded Studentship: Dependence modelling with copulas

School: Computing Sciences

Primary Supervisor: Dr Aristidis K. Nikoloulopoulos

Project Description:

This project will focus on dependence modelling 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. Our goal is to develop parametric families of copulas, see for example Nikoloulopoulos and Karlis (2009); Joe et al. (2010); Nikoloulopoulos et al. (2009, 2011b), that are appropriate as models for multivariate data and inferential methods, see for example Nikoloulopoulos et al. (2011a), to overcome computational complexities imposed by some existing families.
