I am a Lecturer in Statistics with the Department of Mathematical Sciences, and the Centre for Data Science, Loughborough University. I am also a member of National Centre for Statistical Ecology, UK.
My general research interest is in the science of data, Data Science. Data and models - measurement and description of phenomena - they have been the foundation of modern sciences. For the last several years my research activities lie on the intersection of statistics and subject matter sciences, with a particular focus on environmental/ecological sciences. My research concerns how statistical consideration contributes to advancing our knowledge and understanding of phenomena of interest.

I am an associate editor of the Journal of Agricultural, Biological, and Environmental Statistics (JABES) and the Japanese Journal of Biometrics.

For prospective project students
If you are interested in doing an interdisciplinary research project with Data Science and Statistics, I have several possible projects appropriate for the levels of summer studentship, final year, MSc and PhD. I am happy to hear and discuss your ideas. Recent projects we have had, for example, include:
  • Modelling life history of livings (Final Year)

  • Quantifying gambling harm coming to your life (Final Year)

  • Detecting anomaly in financial market time series data (MSc)

  • Advances in ecological data science (PhD)

Teaching
  • [MAB206] Statistics
