At a high level, my research is about finding statistical patterns, underlying structure, and generally making sense of big datasets.

I'm of the view that:

  • being able to extract probabilistic belief from modern large-scale and complex data sources will be of significant societal benefit.
  • solutions are at the intersection of mathematics, statistics and computer science.

 A lot of my research is driven by cyber-security applications, and so I am particularly interested in:

  • Networks, time series, and point processes
  • Machine-learning
  • Anomaly detection


Patrick Rubin-Delanchy obtained a PhD in Statistics at Imperial College London in 2008, supervised by Professor Andrew Walden. He was awarded a Heilbronn fellowship in Data Science at the University of Bristol (2012) and then the University of Oxford (2016). Since July 2017, he has been an assistant (now associate) professor in Statistics at the University of Bristol.
