I am a postdoctoral researcher specialising in Bayesian statistical analysis on big data, working in WEAVE-LOFAR My main interests are reverberation mapping and the interface between star-forming galaxies and AGN. I have worked with a diverse range of data including the latest releases from the LOFAR, SDSS, HST, WISE, and H-ATLAS surveys as well as the Horizon-AGN simulations. My latest work combines the use of novel statistical Bayesian analysis with these large datasets in order to facilitate effective exploitation of the next generation of surveys.
