Thesis Title Bayesian Non-Parametric methodology for stochastic epidemic models
Thesis Abstract When modelling epidemics, assumptions are often made about the underlying processes or the structure of the model. Bayesian non-parametric methods, such as those using Gaussian processes, allow us to relax some of the assumptions made. We will investigate inference for non-parametric models in a Bayesian framework, and develop efficient implementations of non-parametric models.
