About me

I am a Lecturer in Statistical Data Science in the Department of Statistical Science, University College London. Previously, I was a research fellow at Cantab Capital Institute for the Mathematics of Information, University of Cambridge and a PhD student of Professor Richard Samworth.

Research interests

I am broadly interested in the area of high-dimensional statistics. My research aims to develop computationally efficient procedures for high-dimensional problems, while at the same time understanding the potential statistical limitations imposed by computational constraints. Below are some of my current research topics.
