You can find me in my office 2.20 in the Department of Statistics, 24 – 29 St Giles’, Oxford, OX1 3LB.

My research interests are the application of network theory and other mathematical methods on real world data sets, especially protein interactions, as well as, neuroscientific connectivity data. More specific research topics include

  • network topology and analysis
  • community detection & statistical inference in networks
  • multilayer networks for integrative data analysis
  • computational neuroscience
  • persistent homology

Currently, I am supervised jointly by Charlotte Deane (Statistics, University Oxford), Gesine Reinert (Statistics, University Oxford), and Quin Wills (Novo Nordisk Research Centre Oxford).

During my doctoral studies, I was supervised jointly by Mason Porter (UCLA), Charlotte Deane (Statistics, University Oxford), Jonny Wray (e-Therapeutics), and Philip Maini (Mathematics, University of Oxford).

I am the current organiser of the Networks Seminar (Tuesdays at noon) at the Mathematical Institute. Please contact me if you would like to speak.

If you are interested in proteins, please see our blog BLOPIG.

Occasionally, I am answering questions about Education, Maths and Physics on Quora, see here.
