Lawrence Murray is a research scientist in computational statistics at CSIRO Mathematics, Informatics and Statistics in Perth, Australia. He received his PhD in informatics, specialising in machine learning, at the School of Informatics of the University of Edinburgh, and honours degree in software engineering at the Australian National University. His research encompasses methodological, computational and applied aspects of Bayesian statistics, especially:
- State-space modelling.
- Sequential Monte Carlo (SMC) and particle Markov chain Monte Carlo (PMCMC) methods.
- High performance computing on graphics processing units (GPUs) and distributed memory clusters.
- Applications including (recently) marine biogeochemistry and soil carbon.
LibBi released 23 Jun 2013 After four years of development, [LibBi] is now available as open source software. LibBi is used for state-space modelling and Bayesian inference on high-performance computer hardware, including multi-core CPUs, many-core GPUs (graphics processing units) and distributed-memory clusters.
