My research interests are in computational statistics and phylogenetic inference. Most recently, I have been developing couplings of Monte Carlo algorithms on the space of phylogenetic trees (paper, poster).

See here for my contact details. Google Scholar lists my publications and GitHub hosts code for my research projects.

I was at Université Paris Dauphine-PSL as a postdoc in the CEREMADE (2020–2022). I was at the University of Oxford as a senior postdoc in the Big Data Institute (2019–2020), a stipendiary lecturer at St Peter’s College (2019–2020) and a postdoc in the Department of Statistics (2016–2019).

I completed my DPhil in Statistics at the University of Oxford in 2016 under the supervision of Geoff Nicholls. I received my MASt in Mathematics from the University of Cambridge in 2012. I obtained my Bachelor of Actuarial & Financial Studies from University College Dublin in 2011.
