## Overview

I am a Reader in Statistics at the School of Mathematics since August 2021. I joined the School in September 2013 as a Lecturer and I was promoted to Senior Lecturer in August 2019. Before that I was an Assistant Professor at the Department of Mathematics at Michigan Technological University (2010-2013) and a New Researcher Fellow at the Statistics and Applied Mathematics Sciences Institute (SAMSI - North Carolina, US). My research has been funded by National Science Foundation, the London Mathematical Society, the GW4 Network and the Wellcome Trust.

My research interest includes high-dimensional statistics, supervised and unsupervised dimension reduction, computational statistics, machine learning and text data analysis. I am happy to discuss with prospective Ph.D. students any research projects they are interested with if they want to work with me.

I currently have the following roles within the School/University:

- Director of Postgraduate Taught Studies
- Deputy Academic Director for Data Science Academy (DSA)
- Theme Lead on "Skills and Education" in the CU/ONS Strategic Partnership
