I am a statistical modeller, interested in using modern techniques to solve real world problems. Officialy, I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the EPSRC Hub for Quantitative Modelling in Healthcare.
My interests include Uncertainty Quantification (UQ), which is the statistical analysis of complex scientific computer models. This often involves developing emulators (fast statistical surrogate models to speed up and facilitate proper experimentation, often via Gaussian processes), and applying modern calibration and optimisation techniques to learn about the real world and make decisions.
I recently submitted my PhD thesis entitled "Emulation of Stochastic Computer Models with an Application to Building Design" primarily developed methods for dealing with stochastic scientific models (i.e. those that have random properties), and applying these to improve the design of buildings.
