Research interests

Dr. Hall is an applied mathematician who specializes in the mathematical aspects of data science. His research focuses on predictive modelling, stochastic simulation, and uncertainty quantification for complex systems. Recently, Dr. Hall has developed domain-aware surrogate models and accompanying sensitivity analysis techniques for scientific machine learning. His work has considered various application areas, including multi-scale/-physics systems in materials science (energy materials), non-Markovian models in finance and biology, and sparse data problems in subsurface flow in geophysics.


Dr Hall teaches the MA22004 Statistics 2 and MA33001 Mathematics Work Placement modules. He also supervises undergraduate mathematics honours projects in statistics, applied probability, and data science, including scientific machine learning.
