I am a postgraduate research student at the Centre for Doctoral Training in Data Science, part of the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh.

I am interested in Bayesian approaches to machine learning and statistical inference. For my PhD I am working on using Bayesian inference for scientific applications that have traditionally presented challenges for probabilistic modelling, as part of Iain Murray's research group. Applications I have worked on include physiological modelling and density estimation for noisy astronomical datasets.

Before moving to Edinburgh I worked as a data scientist and software engineer in London. For my undergraduate degree I studied engineering at the University of Cambridge.
