Biographical Statement

I am a lecturer in industrial mathematics with a background in applied statistics for problems in industry and government. 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, decision-making under uncertainty and statistics and the law.

I previously held postdoctoral positions at the Universities of Durham and Edinburgh in statistical modelling for energy systems. 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.
