## Welcome!

I'm currently a Reader in Statistics in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, Lancaster University. From October 2016 - September 2019 I held 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.

### 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.

### Software

** R packages **

- EVcopula (or as a .zip) to accompany the paper
*Modelling across extremal dependence classes*. Example code to help installation / familiarisation with features.
- SpatialADAI to accompany the paper
*Modeling spatial processes with unknown extremal dependence class*. Example code.
- geometricMVE to accompany the paper
*Statistical inference for multivariate extremes via a geometric approach*. Example code.

- Packages may be updated at any time. Please inform me of any bugs at the address at the top of the page... thanks!

** Other **
R code for

*Exploiting structure of maximum likelihood estimators for extreme value threshold selection.* See also Léo Belzile's R package
