Jane Hillston's home page

I am Professor of Quantitative Modelling in the School of Informatics within the College of Science and Engineering at the University of Edinburgh.
I am a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh.
I am currently Director of Research and Deputy Head of School.

I am a member of the Board of Informatics Europe
and chair of the Informatics Europe working group on Women in Informatics Research and Education.

I am a member of the LFCS (Laboratory for Foundations of Computer Science) in the School of Informatics.

I am coordinator for the QUANTICOL project which is funded as part of the FET-Proactive FOCAS Programme

In 2004 I was the recipient of the first Roger Needham award.

20th--24th June 2016 the QUANTICOL project organised a summer school in Bertinoro, Italy. This will be 16th International School on Formal Methods for the Design of Computer, Communication and Software Systems: Quantitative Evaluation of Collective Adaptive Systems.

Look here for information about applying to study for a PhD in Informatics at Edinburgh. We currently have fully-funded places in two EPSRC-funded CDTs in Pervasive Parallelism and Data Science, and some of my research topics coincide with these areas.
