At a high level, my research is about finding statistical patterns, underlying structure, and generally making sense of big datasets.

I'm of the view that:

  • being able to extract probabilistic belief from modern large-scale and complex data sources will be of significant societal benefit.
  • solutions are at the intersection of mathematics, statistics and computer science.

A lot of my research is driven by cyber-security and biology applications, and so I am particularly interested in:

  • Networks and point processes
  • Machine-learning
  • Anomaly detection

Research opportunities*

I'm always happy to hear from students interested in doing research, e.g. a PhD. You'll need to enjoy doing maths, and you'll also need to be prepared to get your hands dirty with programming and data analysis.

*Upcoming positions
  • I'm advertising a two-year postdoc position on joint modelling of networks for cyber-security applications (funded by the Alan Turing Institute).
Please contact me if you want to discuss.
