I am a lecturer in Statistics in the School of Mathematics, Statistics & Physics. I teach students taking degrees in Maths & Stats, as well as students from other Schools who have to take courses in Maths & Stats.
My main research area is in the field of environmental extremes. My current work is looking at how spatial models for extremes can be used to estimate heavy rainfall events during storms. I also work with colleagues in the Transport Operations Research Group - current work is focussing on Bayesian methods for assessing the effectiveness of road safety schemes and for identifying road safety hotspots.
