I am a senior lecturer in statistics and data-centric engineering in the Statistics section  at Imperial College London. I am also a group leader for the Data Centric Engineering Programme at the Alan Turing Institute. My research interests like at the interface of applied probability, computational statistics and machine learning, with a particular focus on industrial applications. I've worked on application areas ranging from cellular biology, chemical engineering, predictive health management for complex engineering systems, aerospace and energy.
