I am Professor of Statistics in the School of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Nottingham.
I work on developing statistical methodology for the analysis of complex scientific problems, particularly those that involve the use of computer simulators.
My aim is to work closely with scientists to help them build tools and methodologies to extract as much information as possible from their data and simulator.
- I studied Mathematics at the University of Cambridge from 1999 to 2008. My PhD was supervised by Professor Simon Tavaré and was on the Bayesian inference of primate divergence times. In 2003-04 I took a gap year, during which I taught A-Level physics.
- I did an RCUK funded postdoc (2008-2009) on the Managing Uncertainty in Complex Models project project, working under the supervision of
Jeremy Oakley and Tony O’Hagan.
- From 2009 to 2015 I was a lecturer in the School of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Nottingham.
- From 2015-2020 I was senior lecturer, and then (from 2018), professor of statistics at the University of Sheffield.
- September 2020 onwards, Professor of Statistics at the University of Nottingham.
I live in Sheffield with my wife, eight year old daughter, and five year old son. In my spare time, I like to feed my cycling addiction and play the piano.
