I am a Lecturer at the Department of Statistical Science at University College London. I completed a PhD in Statistics in 2007 at the Department of Statistics, University of Warwick, where I subsequently held an appointment as a CRiSM Research Fellow until 2010. I joined UCL at September 2010.
More information can be found on the current pages and in my CV .
My current methodological research interests lie in:
- Methods for optimal estimation and inference of statistical models
- Inference and computation of statistical models from big data sets
- Clustering methods and applications
More details can be found at my research page.
- I will present my work on model-based clustering using copulas at Queen Mary University and University of Bristol on 26th and 27th February 2015, respectively (details here and here).
- I will be giving a course at the 2nd R Spring Course @ AUEB (March 2015, Athens, Greece)
- I am co-organising the 2nd UCL Workshop on the Theory of Big Data (January 2016, London, UK).
- I will be leading a collaborative project with English Institute of Sport on developing statistical methods for sport performance data. The collaboration includes two year's funding for the appointment of a Research Associate in Statistics. News item here and details on the post here.
- I was awarded the MAPS Faculty Teaching Award in the academic staff category. News items here and here.
- Bias in parametric estimation: reduction and useful side-effects appeared in WIRE Computational Statistics.
- I am organising the session "Handling nuisance parameters: Advances towards optimal inference in statistics and econometrics" at ERCIM 2014 (6th - 8th December 2014, Pisa, Italy).
- Improved estimation in cumulative link models appeared in the Journal of the Royal Statistical Society: Series B.
