About Me
I am a postgraduate researcher in statistics working at the boundary of computer science as part of the Oxford-Warwick Statistics Programme (OxWaSP) together with Theodoros Damoulas and Chenlei Leng. My interests are focused on scalable spatio-temporal inference procedures for data generating mechanisms in high dimensions that are ill-behaved or difficult to describe. This encompasses modelling and doing inference for non-stationary data streams that may have changing behaviours across time as well as space. The algorithms and inferential procedures developed as part of this research will be used within the framework of the Clean Air London project at the Turing Institute to support London's Major's office in taking well-informed and data-driven policy decisions. For a more detailed look, here is my CV.
Research Interests

Modelling changepoints in a Bayesian way is elegant and computationally efficient. I am currently working to extend this into a spatio-temporal context and to enable scalable robust inference on multivariate data.

Reviewing Activities

NeurIPS 2019


I have written a substantial amount of software in Python accompanying my research, through which we have been nominated as Turing Reproducible Research Champions 2018 by the Alan Turing Institute. While the code is still being worked on, the versions for the ICML and NeurIPS papers are available here and here.
