Welcome to the personal web-site of Mike Tipping


I am a Ph.D-educated data scientist, whose working career to date has encompassed academic and commercial research, software development, statistical consultancy, start-ups and technical management. My primary interests centre on machine learning and data analytic science, especially Bayesian statistics, and I have pioneered the development of a number of novel modelling techniques, probably the best-known of which is the "relevance vector machine".

In April 2016, I joined the University of Bath as Professor of Data Science in the Institute for Mathematical Innovation (IMI).
