I am a Senior Lecturer (equivalent to Associate Professor) at the Department of Statistical Science at University College London, and a Faculty Fellow of the Alan Turing Institute, which is the UK's national institute for Data Science.

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. In September 2010, I joined University College London as a Lecturer (equivalent to Assistant Professor) in the Department of Statistical Science, and I got promoted to Senior Lecturer in 2015.

Research interests

My current methodological research interests lie in:

  • Theory, methods and computation for optimal estimation and inference of statistical models
  • Clustering methods and applications
  • Inference and computation of statistical models from massive data sets
I also actively engage in applications of Statistics in other disciplines and particularly in Sports Science (leader of the Statistics in Sports and Health group).
