Managing Uncertainty in Complex Models
The MUCM project, funded by Research Councils UK, is a collaboration between five universities: Sheffield, Aston, Southampton, Durham, and LSE and incorporates advisors from across the UK and Europe as well as the USA. The project is run by seven investigators, seven research assistants and four PhD students. See a list of MUCM Project Team members.
The MUCM project is concerned with quantifying and reducing uncertainty in the predictions of complex models across a wide range of application areas, including basic science, environmental science, engineering, technology, biosciences, and economics. The project is multi-disciplinary, and the unifying theme is a Bayesian statistical approach to inference.
At LSE the research team comprised of Professor Henry Wynn, who was the leading researcher; Research Officer Hugo Maruri-Aguilar, and Project Student Noha Youssef, who did her PhD under the MUCM umbrella.
