My research is on the discovery of statistical patterns and underlying structure in complex data. I am particularly interested in:

  • Clustering and graphs
  • Machine-learning and anomaly detection
For a representative example, see my NeurIPS 2020 spotlight presentation on "manifold structure in graph embeddings" (starting at 1:58:00).

I currently lead a research group of ~5, mainly supported by two grants:

  • Bayesian and machine-learning-based analysis of high-volume super-resolution microscopy data for molecular-level cell phenotyping (BBSRC, 2018-2021)
  • Analysis of jointly embedded cyber-security graphs (Alan Turing Institute, 2019-2021)
I am a fellow of the Alan Turing Institute, and have a five-year secondment at the Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research.

Research opportunities

I'm always happy to hear from students interested in doing research, e.g. a PhD. Fundamentally, you'll need to be good at maths — everything else you can learn.

Please contact me if you want to discuss.
