I am a Senior Teaching Fellow in the Statistics Section of the Department of Mathematics. I work primarily as a module leader on the MSc in Machine Learning and Data Science (MLDS), and will also be running some of the UG1 Probability & Statistics (MATH40005) Problem Classes this year.

As well as teaching, I have a number of research interests. Broadly speaking, these include the use of machine learning methods in engineering problems, the use of spatial statistics in ecological applications and the development of likelihood-free approaches to Bayesian inference, in particular using sequential Monte Carlo methods.
