Bayesian inference under model misspecification, Bayesian nonparametrics

I am a third year DPhil student at the Department of Statistics, University of Oxford under the supervision of Professor Chris Holmes. I’m particularly interested in the foundations of Bayesian inference, model misspecification and scalable Bayesian nonparametric inference.
