I was an undergraduate and then a PhD student in the Department of Statistics at the University of Warwick. In 2008 I moved to York as a lecturer.

My research interests are primarily in applied probability, in particular coupling theory, perfect simulation and convergence rates of Markov processes. I have worked on the cutoff phenomenon for random walks (including "one-sided" card shuffles), interacting particle systems (bounding the mixing time of exclusion processes on hypergraphs), perfect simulation algorithms for multi-server queues and questions of stochastic stability (notably state-dependent drift conditions).

I'm always happy to be contacted by anyone looking to undertake a PhD in an area related to my research interests, especially mixing times of random walks and perfect simulation algorithms.
