Welcome!

I'm currently a Lecturer in Statistics in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, Lancaster University. From October 2016 - September 2019 I hold an EPSRC fellowship.

Previously I have been a postdoc in the Statistical Laboratory University of Cambridge, and at EPFL in Switzerland. I completed my PhD in Lancaster in 2012.

PhD position: I am looking for a PhD student to work on multivariate and spatial extremes, beginning October 2018 (or later by arrangement). Funding is available for UK/EU students. Please contact me for further details!

Research



I'm intersted in all aspects of extreme value theory. I'm particularly keen on developing new statistical methodology for extremes, motivated by deficiencies of existing frameworks for practical problems. I'm also interested in copulas, spatial statistics, environmental statistics, likelihood-based inference, and nonparametric inference.
