Inference on graphical models, expectation propagation, particle methods

I am a fourth year DPhil student co-supervised by Prof. Yee Whye Teh and Prof. Arnaud Doucet. I am interested in inference on graphical models, from the computational as well as the application side. I have worked on using expectation propagation to help with particle belief propagation as well as to help with distributed learning. I am now looking at rejection free samplers.
