About

I am a Lecturer (equivalent to Assistant Professor) in the Department of Statistical Science at University College London, and a Group Leader at The Alan Turing Institute, the UK’s national institute for Data Science and AI, where I am affiliated to the Data-Centric Engineering programme.

My research interests are at the interface of computational statistics, machine learning and applied mathematics. I work on methodology for statistical computation and inference for large scale and computationally expensive probabilistic models. In particular, I am interested in the development of algorithms for numerical integration and sampling, as well as methodology for inference with intractable models. In my research, I like to use a variety of tools including kernel methods, Monte Carlo methods, stochastic process theory and Stein’s method.

Prior to UCL, I was a PhD student on the joint centre for doctoral training between the Departments of Statistics at Warwick and Oxford, then spent a year first as research assistant in the Department of Mathematics at Imperial College London, then as a research associate in the Department of Engineering at the University of Cambridge.
