I am a lecturer in the statistics section of the Department of Mathematics at Imperial College London, joint with the Data Science Institute. I am also part of the Machine Learning Initiative at Imperial. My research is on scalable methods and flexible models for spatiotemporal statistics and Bayesian machine learning, applied to public policy and social science. I've worked on application areas that include public health, crime, voting patterns, filter bubbles / echo chambers in media, the regulation of machine learning algorithms, and emotion.
