Sydney Dimmock

PhD student

with Conor Houghton

My background is here in Bristol where I completed my undergraduate MEng degree in Computer Science. Throughout my undergraduate studies I developed an interest in Bayesian statistics and probabilistic modelling of the brain, this naturally led to my final year project under Cian’s supervision on investigating spatial decoding methods for electrophysiological recordings.

My PhD research looks at developing Bayesian models for large multi-region recordings from the brain, placing an emphasis on modelling connectivity and hierarchical structure.
