Dr Quentin Berthet
My research is focused on the theoretical understanding of statistical procedures. I study fundamental problems related to modern datasets such as computational constraints, heterogeneity of the data or presence of errors. I am interested in taking into account societal concerns in the analysis of data, by considering ethical aspects (privacy, security of data), as well as ways to guide decision making in a data-driven way. I use tools from Statistics and Probability Theory, as well as from Optimisation, Information Theory and Computer Science.
