Current research

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Statistics of the University of Warwick.
My research interests include:

  • Representation of uncertainty motivated by the use of a combination of possibility and probability theory to model both epistemic and aleatoric uncertainty (see [12, 14] and [S3, S4]), with applications to robust inference ([17] and [S7]), high-dimensional inference, reinforcement learning and multi-target tracking ([24] and [S6])
  • Bayesian Statistics and Monte Carlo methods, in particular multilevel Monte Carlo methods for the approximation of filtering and smoothing distributions related to differential equations with randomness (see [11, 13, 22] and [S5])

I am also on the Editorial Board of Statistics and Computing and of the AIMS journal Foundations of Data Science.
