About me:

I am an Associate Professor of Statistics at Durham University. Previously, I had academic positions at Imperial College, Manchester and KU Leuven. My research mainly focuses on high dimensional statistics, longitudinal data analysis, change point analysis for high dimensional data, mixed-effects models, survival analysis, nonparametric and semiparametric models, joint modelling and model diagnostics. A major focus of my research has been on developing novel statistical methods and models for the analysis of complex data such as high dimensional data and longitudinal/multilevel data, especially from medical and health studies.

I have achieved Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy. Last academic year I taught the MSc course "Models and Methods for Health Data Science". This year I teach the course "High Dimensional Statistics" for final year mathematics and statistics students.

If you are interested to do a PhD in Statistics or Data Science, please get in touch.
