I am a fourth year PhD student in the University of Warwick Centre for Doctoral Training in Mathematics and Statistics, under the supervision of Professor Jane HuttonLink opens in a new window. My research interests include, but are not limited to, graphical models, sports analytics, and linguistics. My main focus currently is in Chain Event Graphs and their applications to longitudinal studies. I previously completed a BA in Mathematics at Trinity College, Dublin, graduating with a gold medal.

After finishing my undergraduate degree, I spent time working as an investment banking consultant, specializing in the infrastructure sector and based in Dublin, before travelling and working as a TEFL teacher in Busan, South Korea.

With regard to teaching at Warwick, I currently am teaching tutorials for ST231 - Linear Statistical Modelling with R. I previously taught ST104 - Statistical Laboratory, ST116 - Mathematical Techniques, ST218 - Mathematical Statistics Part A, and ST228 - Mathematical Methods for Statistics and Probability. I am also one of the organisers of SMASH and was nominated for a Warwick Award for Teaching Excellence in 2022.

For the academic year 2021/2022, I was one of the organisers for the Young Researchers Meetings (YRM).

Outside of academia, my main interest is in sport. I am an avid fan of soccer, basketball and American football, and currently play baseball for the Birmingham Metalheads. I am also a competitive Magic: The Gathering player, having competed at Pro Tour March of the Machine in May 2023.
