I am an associate professor in the Department of
Mathematics and Statistics at Washington University in
St. Louis. Research interests:
My research spans statistical theory, foundations, and
methodology. Using techniques from asymptotic theory, I
study the questions of validity, accuracy and power of
statistical inference procedures, and also develop methods
which can help achieve these goals. I am interested in the
relationships between different paradigms for statistical
inference, such as neoFisherian, Bayesian, and
frequentist approaches, and also new methods for
datadriven science from machine learning. In addition to
ongoing work on higherorder asymptotics for
likelihoodbased and Bayesian inference, I am currently
working on postselection inference, the bootstrap, and
prediction after model selection. I received my PhD in mathematics
from Imperial College
London under the direction of Alastair
Young. I am the lead organizer of the Workshop
on HigherOrder Asymptotics and PostSelection Inference
(WHOAPSI), which is taking place for the fifth time
from June 2123, 2020. Ph.D. Mathematics, Imperial College London M.Sc. Econometrics and Mathematical Economics, London School of Economics M.Sc.
