Welcome to my departmental web page.
Research: I am currently a postdoctoral research associate affiliated with Computer Laboratory and Clare College, University of Cambridge. I have been previously affiliated with Cambridge Statistical Laboratory. I apply statistical modelling to study transport traffic, communication and energy systems. In particular, I am currently studying multipath and multicast communication protocols in mobile wireless ad-hoc networks. I am also interested in distributed energy storage systems with high penetration of renewables.
Broadly speaking, my research interests include stochastic modelling and statistical inference, as well as optimal experimental design problems; priority queueing systems with switchover times, polling systems; optimisation on graphs and networks; random matrix theory and its applications.
While I am currently looking into mathematics of communication, energy and power network systems, I have recently been working on the TIME-EACM project, which explored how sensor networks and distributed systems can be used in order to improve transport traffic management and control. In particular, I was working on statistical modelling and analysis of sparse urban transport traffic data.
My previous research includes a PhD in Operational Research on `Switchover Time Modelling in Priority Queueing Systems' and a PhD in Statistics on `Inference and Experimental Design for Percolation and Random Graph Models'. In my MSc thesis I was interested in the spectral analysis of sample covariance matrices: specifically, the dissertation discussed computational aspects and numerical realisation of the Tracy-Widom distributions as well as the solution to Painleve II differential equation (with realisations in R/S-Plus).
Teaching: In Lent term 2013-2014 I am teaching (together with Dr Richard Gibbens) an MPhil/Part III course Flows in Networks. As a College Research Associate at Clare College (since 2012) I provide supervisions in Part IA Maths B. I also supervised Part IA Computer Science Tripos students in Probability Theory, Part IB Mathematical methods for Computer Science and Part II Computer Systems Modelling students from Clare/Emma/Girton/Robinson/Selwyn/Sidney colleges.
