About me

I am a post-doctoral research associate at the Statistical Laboratory, University of Cambridge, under the supervision of Prof Richard J. Samworth. I am broadly interested in the area of high-dimensional statistics. My research aims to develop computationally efficient procedures for high-dimensional problems, while at the same time understanding the potential statistical limitations imposed by computational constraints. I have worked in the areas of sparse principal component analysis and high-dimensional changepoint estimation.

Publications and Preprints


I am teaching Part II Statistical Modelling practical sessions and supervising Part IB Statistics and Part II Statistical Modelling in Lent term, 2017. I have also supervised Part IA Probability in the past. The notes for statistics catch-up lecture for Michaelmas term, 2014 can be found here.
