Dr Chris Drovandi is a Professor in the School of Mathematical Sciences at the Queensland University of Technology (QUT). Chris completed his PhD in 2012 at QUT and is currently a holder of an Australian Research Council (ARC) Discovery Project on novel Sequential Monte Carlo methods. In 2022 he will commence an ARC Future Fellowship on statistical inference for implicit models. From 2016-2019 he held an ARC Discovery Early Career Researcher Fellowship, delivering close to $400,000 in funding. His research interests are in Bayesian algorithms for complex models, optimal Bayesian experimental design methods and the translation of Bayesian methods across many disciplines. Chris is currently supervising several post-graduate students. For more information, visit Dr Drovandi’s website.
