Keywords mathematical modelling
stochastic systems
statistical methodology
Bayesian modelling
graphical models
Areas of expertise I am a statistical scientist, principally interested in modelling complex stochastic systems - I work both with specific application areas (such as gene expression, protein structure, and other areas of science and technology) and with general issues. The focus is usually to deliver practical statistical methodology, not only qualitative insight. My models are often Bayesian, and I am interested in the necessary computational methods, including Markov chain Monte Carlo. I have also recently started working on more fundamental issues in the connections between probabilistic graphical models and relational models.
