August 2020 Read my MRes thesis on stochastic modelling of urban travel demand here.
April 2020 I was involved in the Alan Turing Institute’s work on modelling London’s “busyness” during the pandemic. You can find more about it here, here, and here.
January 2020 Read my mini-project on Bayesian inversion of hydrological models here.
June 2018 Read my undergraduate thesis on Bayesian online changepoint detection of point processes here.


I am a first year EPSRC-funded PhD student in the interdisciplinary CDT in Future Infrastructure and Built Environment and a member of the new CSML group at the University of Cambridge. I am currently working under the supervision of Professor Mark Girolami on probabilistic modelling of transportation in liaison with 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. You can read my full CV here.
