|Associate Professor, Statistics in the Department of Mathematical Sciences||MCS3088||+44 (0) 191 33 42718|
I am an Associate Professor in Statistics at the Department of Mathematical Sciences at Durham University in UK.
I have worked as a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Mathematics of the Purdue University, and as a postdoctoral researcher in the Uncertainty Quantification group in the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in USA.
I hold a PhD degree in Mathematics (Statistics) from the School of Mathematics at the University of Bristol, and a BSc degree in Statistics from the Department of Statistics at the Athens University of Economical and Business studies.
I am a Bayesian statistician with particular research interests in the development of methods for (i.) statistical modelling to address Bayesian computer model calibration and uncertainty quantification (UQ) problems; (ii.) statistical computing to facilitate inference in complex statistical models; and (iii.) machine learning.
A number of my recent research projects/developments address modern statistical challenges such as `Big Data' and High-Dimensional problems one can meet in real applications, while they can be implemented in parallel computing environments.
I am teaching "MATH3431: Machine Learning and Neural Networks III" this year.
