I am a lecturer at the University of Bath, where I am a member of the probability group Prob-L@B. Between 2013 and 2016, I was a postdoc at Prob-L@B, as part of Peter Mörters' EPSRC project Emergence of Condensation in Stochastic Networks. Between 2010 and 2013, I was a PhD student whithin the Laboratoire de Mathématiques de Versailles under the supervision of Brigitte Chauvin and Danièle Gardy.

I am interested in:

Since October 2020, I have been serving as an Associate Editor of the Applied Probability Trust.

I wrote a general introduction to Pólya urns for the LMS Newsletter (November 2020, page 24). The intended audience is mathematicians in all areas of maths, starting at postgraduate level: the non-official title is ``Why do probabilists still study coloured balls being drawn from urns?'' [pdf]
