I am a Professor of Statistics in the School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Sheffield. My research interests are in Bayesian statistics, in particular analysing uncertainty in complex computer models, eliciting probability distributions, and applications in Health Economics.

Conference: Uncertainty in Computer Models 2014

The UCM2014 conference will be held at the University of Sheffield, UK, during 28th-30th July 2014, on uncertainty in complex computer models, and is open to everyone interested in all aspects of computer model uncertainty, both theoretical and practical. The conference focuses on statistical methods to quantify and analyse the uncertainties in the predictions of computer models. Themes will include propagation of parameter uncertainty and sensitivity analysis; model structure uncertainty; Gaussian process emulators for computationally expensive models; inverse problems, model calibration and history matching. For further information, registration and abstract submission details, please visit the conference website.
