School of Mathematics, University of Manchester

I am a senior lecturer in applied mathematics within the School of Mathematics at the University of Manchester. I am member of the Numerical Analysis Group, the Inverse Problems Group and the Uncertainty Quantification and Data Science Group.

Research Interests

My interests lie in the interface between applied probability, statistics and numerical analysis. I am particularly interested in the development of numerical algorithms which allow us to simulate and analyse complex stochastic systems, ranging from Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) methods for Bayesian inverse problems, to multiscale methods for stochastic biochemical reaction networks.

I am always looking for high quality PhD students with interests in similar areas, so please feel free to email if you are considering applying. In particular at the moment I am looking for students who are interested in scalable algorithms for Bayesian inference. I am also looking for students who are interested in stochastic chemical reactions, including Bayesian inverse problems for these networks.
