I am a Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in Statistics in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics and Lancaster University.
I am interested in problems pertaining to Bayesian machine learning and computational statistics, with a focus on Markov chain Monte Carlo and sequential Monte Carlo techniques. My current research is focused on Bayesian methods for large-scale datasets and tools for online learning. I also occassionally work on problems related to Gaussian processes and network modelling.
I currently hold a UKRI-EPSRC Turing AI Fellowship on Probabilistic Algorithms for Scalable and Computable Approaches to Learning (PASCAL) and an EPSRC fellowship on Scalable and Exact Data Science for Security and Location-based Data. I am also a Co-I on the EPSRC-funded Data Science for the Natural Environment and the NERC-funded Signals in the Soil project.
