Philip J. Brown

Emeritus Professor at University of Kent

Short Bio

After a Bayesian PhD in 1971 at UC London I moved to a Lectureship in Statistics at Imperial College, London. My early work covered models for non parametric  medical diagnosis  and regression election night prediction for the BBC. In 1985 I moved to a professorship in Mathematical Statistics at University of Liverpool. Ten years later I returned south to take up the Pfizer chair of medical statistics at University of Kent. Major research and teaching collaborations have taken me to Berkeley, Melbourne, Helsinki, Stockholm, Vancouver, Houston and Venice. Recent research has focussed on Bayesian multivariate regression methods in high dimensions. 

Sponsored research has been supported by ICI, BBC, EPSRC, ESRC, GlaxoSmithKline, and Pfizer. I am now Emeritus Professor at University of Kent and currently hold a Leverhulme Emeritus fellowship.
