Research interests

My research interests evolve around probability, statistics, stochastic processes and machine learning. Applications of my research can be found in the broad area of financial and actuarial mathematics, data analytics, survival analysis as well as financial technologi.

I have worked in the area of stochastic control for mean-variance type problems and applications in portfolio selection and agent remuneration. Currently, I am applying ideas from probability and statistics into the field of Data Analytics, in particular I am working on robust temporal pattern mining from data that are time stamped. This is part of the EPSRC funded project QuantiCode in which I am a Co-Investigator.

Throughout my career, I have kept close links with several industrial partners and government organisations that I have had projects with (CallCredit, Leeds City Council, Jet2, Sainsburys and others). I am an associate member of the Leeds Institute for Data Analytics (LIDA).
