I am a lecturer in astro-statistics in both the Astrophysics Group in the Department of Physics and the Statistics Section of the Department of Mathematics at Imperial College, London. My research interests are based around problems of inference, in which (probabilistic) conclusions about the real world are made from incomplete or imperfect data, and particularly their application to astrophysics.
