I am currently a Lecturer in Biostatistics working with the CHICAS group led by Professor John Goodacre. Formerly, I was a postdoc with Professor Peter Diggle and before that, a PhD student under the supervision of Professor Paul Fearnhead. My background is in pure mathematics and medical statistics.
I work in the area of computational statistics. I am currently working collaboratively on spatio-temporal statistical methods, associated computational algorithms and the integration of these into web-based information systems. Specifically, I'm interested in,
My PhD research concerned particle filtering (Sequential Monte Carlo) methodology - in particular: adaptive SMC, forward-backward algorithms, fixed parameter estimation and the use of SMC in fixed data scenarios. As part of my PhD, I also conducted research on the rating of NCAA college basketball teams and NBA players.
