Bayes Centre News: Meet the Edinburgh Students Joining the Turing Student Enrichment Scheme

Eight post graduate students from the University of Edinburgh in disciplines ranging from law to computational neuroscience and ethics, have joined this year's Alan Turing Institute Student Enrichment Scheme.

The Enrichment scheme has been designed to give students undertaking a PhD the opportunity to support and enhance their current research by accessing the facilities and opportunities available at The Alan Turing Institute and its partners. Students usually join in their second or third years of a typical doctorate to further the work they are undertaking for their research project and support the completion of the PhD.

We are delighted to announce that this year’s uptake has seen 8 University of Edinburgh’s students successfully make it onto the Enrichment scheme.

Enrichment students have the opportunity to find new collaborators for their research project, or to start a collaboration on something related to their field. Upon starting a placement students join a cohort from across the UK, as well as the range of researchers already active in London, Bristol or Leeds.

Enrichment students can engage remotely prior to their placement start date, in order to provide them with more time to connect and collaborate with the Turing. 

Speaking about the Enrichment Scheme, Jack Gargan says:

This year I was very grateful to be awarded the Alan Turing Institute Enrichment Award.

This will afford me the opportunity to collaborate with an eclectic range of researchers in the fields of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, with a view to exploring the application of novel multivariate techniques to my research in High Energy Physics.
