About me

I am an Associate Professor in Statistics in the Department of Statistics, London School of Economics. Previously, I was a lecturer at University College London, a research fellow at Cantab Capital Institute for the Mathematics of Information, University of Cambridge and a PhD student of Prof Richard Samworth.

I am an Associate Editor of Journal of Royal Statistical Society, Series B. I currently hold a three-year EPSRC New Investigator Award on 'Change-point analysis in high dimensions' [EP/T02772X/1].

Research interests

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. Below are some of my current research topics.
