I am currently an Assistant Professor within the Department of Statistics at the University of Warwick. Prior to this I was a Research Fellow on the £2.4M EPSRC programme grant ''Intractable Likelihood: New Challenges from Modern Applications (i-like)'' (held jointly between Bristol, Lancaster, Oxford and Warwick universities), and completed my Ph.D. at Warwick (under the supervision of Adam Johansen and Gareth Roberts). Before entering academia I worked for a number of years as an actuary for Cigna in the US (Philadelphia) and Spain (Madrid), and hold a passing interest in actuarial and other financial topics.
I'm currently highlighting the following:
Current Research Interests
- Algorithmic design
- Bayesian inference
- Computational statistics
- Monte Carlo methodology
- Perfect simulation
- Scalable methods for big data and big models
- Stochastic differential equations
