I am currently a Research Associate in Statistics in the Department of Mathematics, Imperial College London. My principal research focus has been on developing theory, methodology and computational tools to solve emerging problems in biomedicine and science more generally, especially under fully Bayesian settings. Specific areas of interest include biostatistics, mixture models, hidden Markov models, causal inference.
