I am a Postdoctoral Associate at the University of Minnesota, Division of Biostatistics working with Dr. Mark Fiecas. I have obtained my Ph.D. in the Oxford-Warwick Statistics Programme (OxWaSP), working under the supervision of Professor Bärbel Finkenstädt Rand (University of Warwick, UK) and collaboration with Dr. Mark Fiecas. My area of research lies in the connection between Bayesian statistics and biomedical life sciences, where I am particularly interested in the development of methodologies for the automated analysis of nonstationary time series.
