I am an assistant professor in the Department of Mathematics at Washington University in St. Louis. I
am part of the Statistics
Group. 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 fourth time from August 1719, 2019.
