I am interested in data, of all kinds, from any domain and also interested in the legal and regulatory environment surrounding data. It is particularly interesting when statistical good practice interacts with other imperatives.
Some of my research interests are in computational statistics, multiscale methods, time series, regression and official statistics.
I also love teaching statistics and see teaching and research as mutually reinforcing.
