I am a PhD student at the Mathematics for Real-World Systems CDT.
My areas of academic interest include: simulation-based optimisation, automated model building, machine learning, and game theory. In particular, I am interested in the simulated annealing and Bayesian optimisation algorithms.
My ongoing project involves exploring techniques to parallelise the simulated annealing algorithm for implementation in cloud-based architecture. The project is in collaboration with Lanner, a company that produces simulation software to model complex, stochastic processes. I am supervised by Prof. Juergen Branke (Warwick Business School) and Prof. Robin C. Ball (Physics).

Fun fact: Despite the location of my undergraduate degree and my accent, I am not in fact Canadian, but from Finland and China. I can speak fluent Finnish and Mandarin Chinese (as well as some English on my good days).
