I am a Research Associate at the STOR-i CDT at Lancaster University. Currently, I am focussing on sequential decision-making for recommender systems.
I recently submitted my PhD thesis, which I completed at STOR-i under the supervision of Professors David Leslie, Kevin Glazebrook and Roberto Szechtman (of the Naval Postgraduate School, USA). Previously, I have worked as a Machine Learning Research Student at PROWLER.io. My full CV is available here.
My research considers online sequential decision making for problems with complex data structures. I am particularly interested in multi-armed bandits, online optimisation, non-parametric Poisson process estimation, and recommender systems.
