I am a Professor of Statistical Science, and a fellow of Jesus College.

I received my PhD in Statistics from the University of Washington in 2011, and was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Statistical Laboratory in Cambridge from 2011 to 2013.

My research interests include graphical models, causal inference, latent variable models and algebraic and semi-parametric statistics.

NEWS: I am accepting applications for doctoral study starting in October 2024. Please see the DPhil in Statistics page, or drop me an email.

NEWS: My work with Vanessa Didelez on Parameterizing and simulating from causal models has been accepted as a JRSS-B discussion paper! View the discussion here and the DeMO here.
