I’m a postdoc with Chris Holmes investigating interpretable probabilistic models for large-scale biomedical applications.
Before coming to Oxford, I was an undergraduate at at University College Dublin and a masters student at the University of Cambridge. I completed my DPhil in Statistics in 2016 here in the department. My thesis, supervised by Geoff Nicholls, describes a novel method to infer rooted phylogenetic trees when traits may undergo lateral transfer.
