I am an Associate Professor of Statistics at the school of Mathematics and statistics. My research is focussed primarily on the development of Bayesian models and computational methodology to solve real world problems. My current interest include developing Bayesian semiparametric models; computational methods for large spatial data arising from medical images; approximate Bayesian inference methods and various applications of Bayesian methodology to real world problems.
My research interests include:
- Bayesian inference, Bayesian nonparametrics
- Bayesian computation: Markov chain Monte Carlo, Approximate Bayesian computation
- Quantile regression
- Spatial modelling
- Statistical applications in ecology
- Medical image analysis
