PhD - Statistical Learning for Interactive Education Software.

My PhD has focused on modifications of the bandit problem motivated by the challenge of selecting questions for students in education software.

In recent years, the education sector has moved away from the traditional pen and paper approach to learning and started to incorporate new technologies into the classroom. Sparx is an education research company that uses technology, data and daily involvement in the classroom to scientifically investigate how students learn. My PhD is in collaboration with Sparx.

Multi-armed bandits are a popular way of modeling the trade-off between exploration and exploitation. It is natural to wish to apply them to the problem of selecting questions in education software. However, due to the complexities of this problem standard multi-armed bandit approaches cannot be directly used. My PhD focuses on variants of the bandit problem motivated by the educational setting. I am interested in both the theoretical and practical aspects of such problems.

MRes

During the MRes year of the STOR-i program, we took several taught courses along with some research projects. I did a short project on Multi-Objective Optimization (poster, report) and a long project on Multi-Armed Bandits (presentation).
