Research interests

My research interests lie in the area of non-parameteric Bayesian modelling of random output computer models. In particular I am investigating the extension of the Gaussian Process formalism to model complex output distributions utilizing a sound experimental design strategy.  I am part of the MUCM and ARCHA research groups.
