I am a University Associate Professor of Statistics in the Statistical Laboratory, Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics (DPMMS) at University of Cambridge, a Fellow of the Corpus Christi College, and an Associate Faculty of the Cambridge Centre for AI in Medicine (CCAIM).

I am interested in improving the general quality and appraisal of statistical research, including new methodology and a better understanding of causal inference, novel study designs, sensitivity analysis, multiple testing, and selective inference.
