I am a postgraduate research student at the Centre for Doctoral Training in Data Science, part of the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh.

I am interested in Bayesian approaches to machine learning and statistical inference. Currently I am working on MCMC methods for scientific applications, supervised by Iain Murray. Previously I worked on Bayesian optimisation for hyperparameter tuning of large deep learning-based models.

Before moving to Edinburgh I worked as a data scientist at MarketInvoice in London. For my undergraduate degree I studied engineering at the University of Cambridge.
