Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics

I am the Professor of Astrostatistics and Data Science at the University of Cambridge. I hold this interdisciplinary faculty position jointly at the Statistical Laboratory of the Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics, and at the Institute of Astronomy. As of 2024, I am Past Chair of the Astrostatistics Interest Group of the American Statistical Association and a Turing Fellow Alumnus of The Alan Turing Institute. My research interests lie at the intersections of astrophysics, cosmology, statistics, and machine learning.

Research Interests: Astrostatistics and astroinformatics, Applications in time-domain astronomy and cosmology, Bayesian modeling and inference, Statistical computation
