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

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.

I hold a PhD degree in 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. Although much of my research has been focused on Bayesian model calibration and UQ problems, the methods I have developed so far can be used in the context of `big data' and high-dimensional problems, and they can be implemented in parallel computing environments.

I am currently co-organizing the Statistics seminars at the Department of Mathematical Sciences.
