I am a Research Associate in the Statistics section, working within the EPSRC-funded EQUIP project with Professors Andrew Stuart and Mark Girolami.

My current research is focused on parameter estimation in models for pedestrian dynamics via optimization or MCMC methods.

Research Interests

My research interests are broadly in the area of applied analysis. I am interested in the analysis and control of deterministic and/or stochastic partial differential equations which model natural effects and are therefore important for industrial, biological or socio-economical applications.

Current projects include inverse problems in the context of pedestrian dynamics, the use of feedback controls to stabilise and control the solutions to various thin film flow models or surface growth, and analysis of systems of interacting diffusions in the mean-field limit.
