**About me:**

I am Chair / Professor in Statistics at the Department of Mathematics of the University of Manchester.

I am a member of the Statistics section in the Department of Mathematics.In my research I am interested in the principles of statistical learning from data and I develop corresponding probabilistic methods, models and computational tools. Many of these methods are motivated by challenges in the analysis of high-dimensional biomedical data.

I currently teach the modules Statistical Methods and in Multivariate Statistics and Machine Learning to about 350 mathematics and computer science students each year. In addition I supervise the short-term and long-term thesis projects of taught and research students (about 10 per year). I am also the personal academic advisor of about 30 students.

Adminstratively, I am the postgraduate research (PGR) director responsible for four PhD programmes (Statistics, Probability, Financial Mathematics, Mathematics in Actuarial Sciences) offered by the Department of Mathematics.
