    Personal profile


    I joined Aston University in September 2006 where I completed my PhD in May 2011 on the stochastic emulation of computer models. Prior to that I was working in Microsoft Corporation as a software design engineer on the query processor components of the SQL Server database product. 

    Research Interests

    My research interests lie in the area of non-parameteric Bayesian modelling of random output computer models. In particular I am investigating the extension of the Gaussian Process formalism to model complex output distributions utilizing a sound experimental design strategy.  I am part of the MUCM and ARCHA research groups.
