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

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 applications, and so I am particularly interested in:

  • Networks, time series, 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. My current projects revolve around spectral embedding techniques for random graphs and other large discrete structures. 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.
