I am one of the nine original COMPASS students, meaning I started in September 2019 (and managed to get nearly a year without COVID interference). I studied a masters in mathematics at the University of Exeter; where I focused on statistics based courses, as well as a plethora of climate science/environmental mathematics. I am now in the 3rd year of my PhD.
At the beginning of my 3rd year, I undertook an internship with Adarga, where I worked on a lot of natural language processing applications related to my work.
My Research Interests
My PhD supervisor is Dr Song Liu, and together we work on the following topics:
I seek to find new and interesting ways for which we can all do statistics, data science and machine learning. What if we don’t have a full dataset available? What if our data don’t lie on a Euclidean space?
I am also curious in quantifying uncertainty in Deep Learning, and interested in any work that seeks to ‘bridge the gap’ between common statistical techniques and more computer-sciencey machine learning ones.
