He will make a report on the topic "Approximate sampling from smooth and log-concave densities". Arnak is a promising young scientist whose research interests lie in high dimensional statistics, statistics of diffusion processes and statistical learning theory. Arnak is on the editorial board of the Annals of Statistics, Bernoulli, Statistical Inference for Stochastic Processes and the Journal of the Japan Statistical Society.
