My name is Michael Pearce, I have just finished my PhD in Maths at the University of Warwick in the UK, in September 2019, I submitted my PhD thesis titled “Bayesian Optimisation with Mutli-Task Gaussian Processes”. My brilliant supervisor is/was Juergen Branke in the Operational Research and Management Science group in the Warwick Business School.

In my PhD, I focussed on extentions of Gaussian process model based optimisation to applications beyond global optmisation such as Bayesian quadrature optimisation, common random numbers, contextual optimisation and a few others. I also spent some time working in Warwick Medical School on Bayesian-Frequentist methods for clinical trials, I was an intern at Google Deepmind combining graphical models and variational autoencoders and most recently at Uber AI focusing on large scale Bayesian optimisation and optimisation over combinatorial domains.
