Simon Rogers
Lecturer: School of Computing Science, University of Glasgow

I am a SICSA funded lecturer in the School of Computing Science, University of Glasgow. Prior to obtaining a permanent position, I worked on several post-doctoral projects as well as spending 5 months as a consultant for Mosaiques diagnostics and Therapeutics.

My research focuses on machine learning and statistical inference within the fields of computational biology and bioinformatics, and human computer interaction. A list of publications with links and supplementary information is available here.

In 2011 I co-authored a Machine Learning textbook with Prof. Mark Girolami. More details here. If you'd like to buy it (and who wouldn't?), then buy it from here, so that I can entertain myself by watching it rise and fall in the rankings.

I currently act as a reviewer for many top international journals, conferences and funding bodies and in August 2009 joined the Editorial board for PLoS ONE.

Within the School of Computing Science, I am a member of the Inference, Dynamics and Interaction research group, led by Prof. Rod Murray-Smith. Prior to that, I was a member of the Inference group led by Prof. Mark Girolami (details here).

I teach various courses within the school - more details here.

Current PhD Students:

I'm open to applications and enquiries from potential PhD students intersested in working in Machine Learning applied to Computational Biology or Human-Computer Interaction -- email me if you're interested.
