About me

I am a fourth year PhD student at the CDT in Mathematics and Statistics at Warwick and I am currently working on high dimensional regression problems and improved prediction methods with my supervisor Ioannis Kosmidis.

Outside of academia, I am an avid cross-country skier, rower and cyclist.
