I am a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Statistics in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics and Lancaster University.
I currently hold an EPSRC fellowship on Scalable and Exact Data Science for Security and Location-based Data and I am a Co-I on the EPSRC-funded Data Science for the Natural Environment.
I work on problems related to Gaussian processes, Bayesian inference 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 Big Data and tools for online learning.
I chair the Royal Statistical Society group on Computational Statistics and Machine Learning RSS-CSML and currently vice-chair of the Statistical Computing section. I am also currently a member of the EPSRC Mathematical Sciences Early Career Forum.
