About Me

I am a final year PhD student part of the MASDOC programme. Prior to joining the University of Warwick I completed my undergraduate studies in Actuarial Mathematics and Statistics at Heriot Watt University in Edinburgh.


I am supervised by Prof. Andrew Stuart and Prof. Charles Elliott under EQUIP.


My research interests lie in the interface of applied mathematics and statistics, primarily Bayesian inverse problems, data assimilation and uncertainty quantification.
