Homepage of Robin Ryder

I am an associate professor (maître de conférences) in Statistics in the CEREMADE at Université Paris Dauphine. Since 2014, I spend half my time in the DMA at École Normale Supérieure. My research focuses on Bayesian computational statistics (MCMC and ABC methods) and applications to Linguistics.

From 2009 to 2011, I was a postdoc with Christian Robert in CREST at INSEE, funded by the GIS Sciences de la Décision (ENSAE - HEC - Polytechnique) and FSMP.

Until 2009, I was a DPhil student working under the supervision of Geoff Nicholls in the Department of Statistics of the University of Oxford. Our research there focused on Phylogenetic analyses of language diversification using lexical data, with estimation via MCMC. The corresponding software, TraitLab, is available here. Before studying at Oxford, I was in the Maths Department of the École normale supérieure in Paris.

Part of my research is funded by a PSL grant.

I co-organize the bimonthly Bayes in Paris reading group at ENSAE (with Nicolas Chopin).
I am also a member of Opération Postes.
