Biographical Statement

I am a research assistant in statistical modelling for energy systems. Applications I have worked on include the modelling of extremes for capacity adequacy studies (assessing the risk of shortfalls), emulation of large scale energy planning models and decision-making under uncertainty.

I previously worked as a research associate in the quantification of uncertainty for large scale energy models at Durham University. My PhD, at the University of Edinburgh, was in statistical modelling for the evaluation of forensic evidence. This focused on the evaluation of autocorrelated evidential data, in particular for evidence relating to traces of cocaine on banknotes.
