I am a second year PhD student in the University of Warwick Centre for Doctoral Training in Mathematics and Statistics, under the supervision of Professor Jane Hutton. 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. I previously completed a BA in Mathematics at Trinity College, Dublin.
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.
Outside of academia, my main interest is in sport. I am an avid fan of soccer, basketball and American football, with experience in playing these along with baseball, Gaelic football and cricket in the past.
