Biographical details

I received a PhD in Applied Mathematics from Joseph Fourier University (France) in December 2011. I have been promoted to Senior Lecturer (equivalent to US Associate Professor), effective 1 January 2019.

I am a member of the Statistics research group at the School of Mathematics and Statistics and the interim deputy director at the Centre for Translational Data Science (CTDS).

Research interests

My research interests are developing Statistical Machine Learning (field that merges statistics with the computational sciences --- computer science, systems science and optimization) models for complex big data; as well as developing appropriate softwares and visualisation tools.

My contributions lie particularly in Bayesian nonparametrics, Graphical modelling, Variational methods, and probabilistic learning. My applied research interests include biomedical/bioimaging and enigneering related challenges.
