Biographical Statement

My pronouns are he/him. I am a University Teacher in Statistics in the School of Mathematics, and so I’m involved in teaching probability/statistics courses to undergrads and master’s students. I recently completed my DPhil degree in probability theory, with my research investigating limiting properties of a particular random graph model. I’ve also taught statistical methods and R to a variety of audiences, most recently teaching a course aimed at introducing R to complete programming novices. I believe that everyone can learn to code, and really enjoy helping others apply statistical and programming techniques to their problems.
