Grant from Villum Foundation

Yuri Goegebeur receives research funds

The Villum Fond has awarded a grant of 1.883.700 DKK to Yuri Goegebeur (Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, University of Southern Denmark), Michael Falk (University of Würzburg) and Armelle Guillou (Strasbourg University) for the project “Univariate and Multivariate Regression on Extreme Values”.

The funding (2014-2018) covers a PhD position and travel expenses. 

The objective of this project is to develop and study estimators for parameters and functions describing dependence between variables at extreme levels, as well as to study estimation problems in the related context of regression analysis on extreme values.
