Personal profile


Before joining Edinburgh, I was a Lecturer in Computer Science at the University of Exeter. In the previous, I worked as a research fellow in the Department of Informatics, University of Sussex during the period 2017 - 2019, and as a postdoc in the Department of Computer Science, University of Exeter during the period 2019 - 2020.

Research Interests

My research interests focus on probabilistic machine modelling and non-parametric Bayesian predictive methods such as Gaussian Process and Student-t Process modelling. As their applications, I also have expertise in time series prediction, financial data analysis, algorithmic fairness, and human mobility.
