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.

My current 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.
- Applications of Statistics in Sports (co-founder of the SHARP group at UCL).
More details can be found at my research page.
- 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 will be giving a course at the 1st R Summer School @ AUEB (23rd - 27th June 2014, Athens, Greece)
- 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.
- I am co-organising the 1st UCL Workshop on the Theory of Big Data (7th - 9th January 2015, London, UK).
