About

I am a senior lecturer in the Department of Mathematics at the University of York, UK. Prior to joining York in 2008, I was at the University of Warwick, where I completed my undergraduate studies and PhD, as well as a short postdoctoral position. My main research interest is probabilistic coupling. My most recent papers deal with problems concerning optimal co-adapted coupling, the cutoff phenomenon for Markov chains, convergence rates of Markov processes (using Foster-Lyapunov criteria under adaptive subsampling) and perfect simulation.
