I am a PhD student in the Statistical Laboratory within the Department of Pure Maths and Mathematical Statistics at the University of Cambridge, supervised by Rajen Shah. I am a member of the Cantab Capital Institute for the Mathematics of Information as well as Gonville and Caius College, which is where I completed my undergraduate studies. My CV can be found here.


My research interests are centred around methodology for high-dimensional statistics and large-scale data analysis. In particular, I am currently interested in theoretical and computational aspects of estimators and algorithms under sparse structural assumptions.

Applications I am interested in include medicine and volcanology; I also help out at the Statistics Clinic.

Publications and preprints


I have supervised Part IA Probability, Part IB Markov Chains and Part II Statistical Modelling. I have also led example classes for Part III Modern Statistical Methods.
