    PhD Project Topics

      Projects with Dr Alok Sharma Students can enrol at UNSW Sydney or USP depending on the scholarship.

      PhD Project 1: Bayesian deep learning for protein function detection
    • Bayesian inference via Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) methods provide a probabilistic approach for training neural networks. Parallel tempering MCMC can feature parallel computing with enhanced exploration and exploitation capabilities that make them suitable for deep learning such as LSTMs and convolutional neural networks. Bayesian deep learning addresses the limitations of deep canonical learning by providing rigorous uncertainty quantification in modelling and predictions. This project applies advanced Bayesian deep learning methods for problems for protein function detection

    • PhD Project 2: Bayesian interence for MoRFs and protein peptide interactions
    • Bayesian inference is typically implemented using Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) that sample from the posterior distribution to estimate and quantify the uncertainty of unknown parameters of interest. These unknown parameters are a challenge in models in the area of bioinformatics that deal with large datasets. Parallel tempering MCMC features parallelism with enhanced exploration and exploitation capabilities and hence can be applied to computationally expensive problems with the power of parallel computing. In this project, we use advanced Bayesian inference methods to estimate the model parameters in molecular recognition of features (MoRFs) in protein sequence and protein-peptide interaction.
