A Little Bit About Me

I joined the School of Mathematics at the University of Edinburgh in September 2015 as the Thomas Bayes' Chair of Statistics. From August 2023 I will be the Director of the Bayes Centre, the University of Edinburgh's Innovation Hub for AI and Data Science.

I was elected a Fellow of the Learned Society of Wales in 2017; a fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh in 2018; and a fellow of the Institute for Mathematical Statistics in 2022.

I am an active member of the wider statistical community with current positions of responsibility including Deputy Director of the National Centre for Statistical Ecology (NCSE) (2019-2023).

In 2017 I was one of the founding team that launched the (still running) Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on Statistics: Unlocking the World of Data.

I am also a co-founder of the University of Edinburgh's Centre for Statistics, launched in 2017, uniting statisticians and quantitative researchers across the three colleges of the University.
