I joined Aston University in September 2006 where I completed my PhD in May 2011 on the stochastic emulation of computer models. Prior to that I was working in Microsoft Corporation as a software design engineer on the query processor components of the SQL Server database product. 

A full list of publications and my CV > 
  • PhD, Statistics and Information Engineering University of Aston, Birmingham, United Kingdom, expected time Spring 2010. Thesis Advisor: Dan Cornford Title: Emulation of Random Output Computer Models
  • BSc in Software Engineering, First Class, University of Newcastle Upon Tyne 1999, United Kingdom

  • 1999-2006: Software Design Engineer in the Query Processor of SQL Server, Microsoft Corporation, Seattle, Washington, USA.


  • Transition Mathematics for Engineers (AM11EM). Teaching assistant. 2010.
  • Linear Algerba. Teaching Assistant.
  • Probabilistic Modelling (AM40PM), MSc in  Mathematics of Complex Systems. 2011.


My research interests lie in the area of non-parameteric Bayesian modelling of random output computer models. In particular I am investigating the extension of the Gaussian Process formalism to model complex output distributions utilizing a sound experimental design strategy.  I am part of the MUCM and ARCHA research groups.

I have been funded through the following projects:

  • Managing Uncertainty in Complex Models (MUCM)
  • UncertWeb
