Research interests

My research is focused on the theoretical understanding of statistical procedures. I study fundamental problems related to modern datasets such as computational constraints, heterogeneity of the data or presence of errors. I am interested in taking into account societal concerns in the analysis of data, by considering ethical aspects (privacy, security of data), as well as ways to guide decision making in a data-driven way. I use tools from Statistics and Probability Theory, as well as from Optimisation, Information Theory and Computer Science.


About us

The Cambridge Big Data Strategic Research Initiative brings together researchers from across the University to address challenges presented by our access to unprecedented volumes of data. Our research spans all six Schools of the University, from the underlying fundamentals in mathematics and computer science, to applications ranging from astronomy and bioinformatics, to medicine, social science and the humanities

In parallel, our research addresses important issues around law, ethics and economics, in order to apply Big Data to solve challenging problems for society.

Cambridge Big Data supports collaboration and knowledge transfer in this growing field.
