Summary

 

Summary

I am a Reader in Statistical Machine Learning in the Department of Mathematics

PREVIOUS POSITIONS


Coming from a background in mathematics and the theory of stochastic processes, I completed a Ph.D. in Statistical Machine Learning at Télécom ParisTech in November 2010. After my PhD, I have been awarded a Medical Research Council Fellowship (2011-2014) and worked in the Theoretical Systems Biology group at Imperial College London. From 2014 to 2016, I was in the Statistic Department of Oxford University and a faculty fellow at the Alan Turing Institute before coming back to Imperial College London where I first held a joint lectureship position between the School of Public Health and the Department of Mathematics (2017-2019) and then a senior lectureship in the Department of Mathematics.
