Biography

Personal Statement

I am an applied mathematician working on computational Bayesian methods, model calibration and metamodelling. My priority is to establish links with industry to develop fundamental methods and promote the use of uncertainty quantification techniques. To this effect, I am part of the steering committee of the Special Interest Group on Uncertainty Quantification and Management in High Value Manufacturing, established by the Knowledge Transfer Network. In this capacity, I have organised a study group with industry where 50 academics, PDRAs and doctoral students worked through challenges to help promote good industrial practice on uncertainty quantification (http://studygroup.riskinstitute.org.uk/). I am the programme director of the MRes and MSc in Risk and Uncertainty within the Institute for Risk and Uncertainty. I am a member of the Committee on Probability and Statistics in the Physical Sciences at the Bernoulli Society for Mathematical Statistics and Probability. I am also a member of the EPSRC Mathematical Sciences Early Career Forum.
