Postdoctoral Assistant at the Barcelona Graduate School of Economics, Universitat Pompeu Fabra, working with Dr. David Rossell and Dr. Piotr Zweirnik.

My research interests surround the methodological and philosophical challenges encountered when conducting Bayesian analyses for modern, high dimensional inference problems. In such scenarios a ‘full’ Bayesian analysis is inevitably impossible and one must resort to approximations, either at a modelling or a computational level.

I am particularly interested in general Bayesian updating and the use of loss functions to make principled Bayesian inference and improved decision making.

Other interests:

  • Model misspecification, robust statistics and the M-open world
  • Divergences, loss functions and scoring rules
  • Variational inference
  • Differential privacy
