I recently joined the Statistics and Actuarial Science Department at the University of Waterloo in January 2018, as an Assistant Professor.

My research is mainly concerned with Bayesian hierarchical modeling and is motivated by applications in a variety of fields, namely ecology and epidemiology. A lot of the problems I work on involve the integration of multiple sources of data in a single analysis (e.g. network meta-analysis in epidemiology and integrated population modeling in ecology). I have a number of interdisciplinary collaborations with academics as well as industry partners.


I am currently recruiting students at the undergraduate, Master's or PhD level. If you are a prospective UW student interested in pursuing a Master's degree, please apply to our Master's program and get in touch with me after you have been admitted to the program (I cannot help you get into the program). If you are interested in pursuing a PhD under my supervision, please apply to our program. Please send me an email after you have applied and I will have a close look at your application!
