I am a professor of statistics in the school of mathematics and statistics, UCD. I graduated with a PhD in statistics from the University of Glasgow in 1999. Following post-doctoral positions at Queensland University of Technology, University of Cambridge and Athens University of Economics and Business, I joined the University of Glasgow as a lecturer in 2002 and then as a reader in statistics from 2006. In 2007 I was appointed as an associate professor at University College Dublin and was subsequently appointed full professor in 2014. I hold an adjunct professorship from Queensland University of Technology since 2013.
My research interests lie broadly in Bayesian statistics, Monte Carlo methods and statistical network analysis. I am especially focused on developing statistical theory and methodology for big data applications.
