About me

I am a first year PhD student in the interdisciplinary CDT in Future Infrastructure and Built Environment at the University of Cambridge supervised by Professor Mark Girolami. My studentship is co-sponsored by EPSRC and Arup. I am also affiliated with the data-centric engineering programme at the Alan Turing Institute in London. Prior to Cambridge, I was working as a Statistical Scientist at an AI startup in London. In 2018, I graduated with a first class honours degree in Statistics and Computer Science (Data Science) at the University of Warwick. My full CV can be found here.
