## Yining Chen Department of Statistics |

I am an assistant professor in statistics at the London School of Economics and Political Science.

In 2017 - 2018, I teach ST444 Statistical Computing, ST447 Data Analysis and Statistical Methods, and supervise ST498 Data Science Capstone Project. Course materials can be found via Moodle.

In the past, I also lectured ST442 Time Series.

My current research interests include shape-constrained estimation, time series analysis, change-point detection and statistical computing. Here is a list of my publications and preprints:
