I am a Lecturer in Statistics at the University of Southampton, UK. Before coming to Southampton, I was a Research Fellow at the University of Warwick, working on the i-like project. My CV provides a little more detail.

I am interested in methods used to do inference for models where the likelihood function is difficult to compute. Some of my research interests are:

  • Inference using approximations to the likelihood, e.g. Laplace approximations
  • Inference for latent variable models, e.g. Generalized Linear Mixed Models
  • Composite likelihood methods

I am the organizer of the Southampton Statisticial Sciences Research Insitute (S3RI) seminar series (schedule). Please contact me if you would like to suggest a speaker.
