I am second year Dphil student under Oxford-Warwick statistics program OxWaSP - a joint program between department of statistics of two universities. I am currently working with Prof. Gareth Roberts and Dr Murray Pollock on Resampled Scalable Langevin Exact (ReScaLE) simulation method which can be used to address Big Data/Big Model issues. My interest lies in the designing of scalable algorithms with a view of application to the big data problems.
