Academic Background :
I am a second year MASDOC student in University of Warwick. Before that, I finished my B.Sc. in Mathematics at the University of Athens in 2015 and I received my MASt from the University of Cambridge in 2016.
Research Interests :
I am mostly interested in Markov Chain Monte Carlo techniques and their applications in Bayesian Statistics. I am currently working with Prof. Gareth Roberts on Piecewise Deterministic Markov Processes and more specifically on a process called Zig-Zag. My second supervisor is Dr. Jon Warren. I am very interested in theory and applications of Markov Chains, and more broadly, of Probability Theory.
