Statistical Laboratory

I am the Professor of Astrostatistics and Data Science at the University of Cambridge. I hold this interdisciplinary faculty position jointly at the Statistical Laboratory of the Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics, and at the Institute of Astronomy. From 2023, I am Chair of the Astrostatistics Interest Group of the American Statistical Association. My research interests lie at the intersections of astrophysics, cosmology, statistics, and machine learning, and include:

  • Astrostatistics, astronomical machine learning, astroinformatics
  • Statistical applications in time-domain astronomy and cosmology
  • Bayesian modelling and inference
  • Statistical computation
