Macquarie University Ph.D Scholarships in High Dimensional Statistical Modelling for Complex Data, Australia 2022-23 is open for International Students. The scholarship allows Ph.D. level program(s) in Statistics taught at Macquarie University.


Recent rapid developments in information technology have enabled the collection of high-dimensional complex data. Including engineering, economics, finance, biology, and health sciences. High-dimensional means that features are vast and often far higher than the number of collected data samples. Additionally, data sets are increasingly complex and messy, making identifying the subset of features that predict one or more outcome variables is even more challenging.

Several optimizations and search methods have been proposed in the literature to tackle the problem of identifying the set of essential predictors, including forwarding stepwise, Lasso, and mixed-integer optimization. Despite their success, modern applications in areas like genomics are challenging the existing methods by pushing the dimensionality of the data to ultra-high dimensionality, where p can be exponentially larger than n. For such ultra-high dimensional problems, the current techniques can be prolonged or can have high prediction errors or both, making them impractical to use.
