Eligible to supervise Masters and PhD - email supervisor to discuss availability.
My research is based around stochastic modelling, mathematical epidemiology, evolution, probabilistic learning and Bayesian inference.
Some current projects are:
- Mathematical modelling of the evolutionary transition from cells to multicellular life.
- Developing inference methods to assist pandemic preparedness.
- Quantifying the 1918 influenza pandemic.
- New simulation methods and importance sampling algorithms for stochastic models.
- Pseudo-marginal methods for Markov chain Monte Carlo.
