PhD supervision

I am interested in supervising PhD students in the broad areas of time series and spatial statistics. Proposals are welcome in developing methodological and computational advances in space-time “big data” analysis, as well as the application of such methods in areas including oceanography, climate, public health, and finance.

My Role

Programme co-Director, MSc Data Science (c.70 students per year)

Theme Lead (Data Science Methods), Centre of Excellence in Environmental Data Science

Seminar Organiser, Data Science Institute

Early Career Representative, Lancaster University Research Committee
