I am Assistant Professor in Statistics at the Department of Mathematical Sciences at Durham University in UK.

I have worked as a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Mathematics of the Purdue University, and as a postdoctoral researcher in the Uncertainty Quantification group in the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in USA.

I hold a PhD degree in Mathematics (Statistics) from the School of Mathematics at the University of Bristol, and a BSc degree in Statistics from the Department of Statistics at the Athens University of Economical and Business studies.

I am a Bayesian statistician with particular research interests in the development of methods for both statistical modelling to address Bayesian computer model calibration and uncertainty quantification (UQ) problems, and statistical computing to facilitate inference in complex statistical models.

A number of my recent research projects/developments aim to address modern statistical challenges such as `Big Data' and High-Dimensional problems one can meet in real applications , while they can be implemented in parallel computing environments.
