    Summary of Research:

    I am a post-graduate student in Statistics with research interests in Bayesian Modelling, Bayesian Inference on Diffusion Processes and fast but accurate approximations to Bayesian posteriors.

    My PhD research is aimed at developing non-MCMC based methods for Bayesian inference on parameters of diffusion processes.  This research is motivated by a real life problem of trying to predict the pattern and extent of deformation to a road surface, which includes modelling the forces exerted by vehicles as they pass over a road surface.

    Prior to my PhD, I also have some experience of using statistical methods for applications in areas such as Bio-Statistics, Market research, Ecology and Engineering.
