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 area of research is applied probability, with interests in probabilistic coupling, mixing times and perfect simulation. I have worked on questions of stochastic stability (notably state-dependent drift conditions), perfect simulation algorithms for multi-server queues, the cutoff phenomenon for a random walk on a ring, and interacting particle systems (bounding the mixing time of exclusion processes on hypergraphs).

I would be very happy to supervise students on a variety of problems associated with my research areas. Possible topics include
* perfect simulation algorithms for compartment models
* mixing times of random walks on rings
* optimal co-adapted coupling of Markov chains
