I am a lecturer in Mathematical Data Science at the School of Mathematics and Edinburgh Futures Institute at the University of Edinburgh. I joined the School of Mathematics as a University Teacher in Statistics in September 2017. Previously, I completed my PhD in Statistics at the University of St Andrews, under the supervision of Michail Papathomas and Ruth King, working on identifiability and parameter redundancy of log-linear models fitted to sparse contingency tables.
