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 a post-doc at Imperial College London and then the University of Arizona, before obtaining a Heilbronn Research fellowship held at the University of Bristol then the University of Oxford. Since July 2017, he is lecturer (assistant professor) in Statistics and Data Science at the University of Bristol.
