I am currently a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Statistics at Harvard University, supervised by Pierre Jacob. Prior to this, I completed my DPhil in Statistics in the Department of Statistics at University of Oxford, under the supervision of Arnaud Doucet.

Research interests

  • Computational statistics (such as Sequential Monte Carlo and Markov chain Monte Carlo methods)
  • Transport methods (in particular using flows)
  • Optimal control (and its efficient computation)
