Jiayi Niu is currently a first year PhD student in the Department of Engineering at Durham University. She received her MSc in Statistics and Operational Research from the University of Edinburgh, and a B.S. in Logistics from Zhengzhou University. Revent work has included statistical machine learning, biomedical data science. 

Research Project

My PhD programme will focus on developing automatic methods for the extraction of differential equations from the data. The work programme consists of a methodological part, where I will develop algorithms to extract differential equations from the data streams, and an applied part, where I will work on biologics data. The applied part of the project is in collaboration with the Centre for Procss Innovation based in Darlington and Durham's newly created Institute for Data Science.
