Generalized linear models have become indispensible tools for the analysis of biomedical, agricultural and engineering data. Recently, there has been some exciting work on novel extensions of generalized linear models that relax classical structural and distributional assumptions, giving them increased flexibility in handling a wider range of scenarios. This project will look at some theoretical and computational aspects of these extensions, leading to valuable contributions to the existing knowledge of regression modelling. The project will be suitable for a student with a Statistical or Computer Science background.
