Research interests

My main area of research concerns the development of models of choice at the level of the individual. These choice sets can be large and represent a number of theoretical and computational challenges.
Currently I am exploring the use of nonparametric methods which can represent heterogeneous preferences and are tractable. Applications exist in the demand for differentiated products including energy.


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.
