I am an Associate Professor at Lancaster University Management School.
Before joining Lancaster I worked at Nottingham University as an Assistant Professor.

Previously, I studied at Cambridge University where I completed Mathematical Tripos Part III and then
a PhD in Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics in 2018, supervised by Prof. Oliver Linton.
My primary research interests lie on developing time series methods for economic/financial applications.

** In March 2023, I co-organised a financial econometrics conference in honour of Professor Stephen Taylor, conference link.
** In June 2022, I co-organised a workshop on Volatility, Jumps and Bursts.
