My full name is Alberto Jesús Coca Cabrero (why do I have two surnames?) and since 2018 I am a Lecturer in Statistics at the Statistical Laboratory (part of the Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics, DPMMS) of University of Cambridge, United Kingdom (UK), and a lecturer and board member at the Cantab Capital Institute for Mathematics of Information (CCIMI). I am also an Official Fellow at Darwin College Cambridge and an affiliated member of the Cambridge Big Data Initiative. I am an Associate Editor of the journal Statistics and Computing.
If you wish to know more:
In 2016 – 2019 I held three Research Associateships: two at DPMMS funded by the department’s 2016 EPSRC doctoral prize (2016 – 2017) and by Prof. Richard Nickl‘s ERC grant ‘Uncertainty Quantification and Modern Statistical Inference’ (2017 – 2018); and one at Clare College Cambridge (2017 – 2019).
In 2016, I completed my PhD studies at DPMMS under the supervision of Prof. Richard Nickl and Prof. L. Chris G. Rogers, mostly funded by Fundación “La Caixa”, EPSRC and Fundación Mutua Madrileña, and briefly by the Cambridge Philosophical Society. I was a member of the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training Cambridge Centre for Analysis and of Darwin College Cambridge.
Previously, I studied the MSc in Mathematics and Finance of the Department of Mathematics of Imperial College London, UK, fully funded by Fundación Ramón Areces, and a Licenciatura in Mathematics (here the more modern Undergraduate Degree) at the Departamento de Matemáticas of Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, Spain.
