Department of Statistics
I am an assistant professor in statistics at the London School of Economics and Political Science.
In the past, I also lectured ST442 Time Series.
My current research interests include shape-constrained estimation, time series analysis, change-point detection and statistical computing. Here is a list of my publications and preprints:
