My research interests are in the statistical design and analysis of experiments, particularly the development of new methods and criteria for design selection and assessment under linear and nonlinear models. A particular emphasis of my work is finding efficient designs when there is uncertainty in one or more aspects of the model for the response. I develop methodology that combines theory and computation to solve problems motivated by real experiments in science and industry. Application areas include engineering, chemistry and the pharmaceutical, automotive and aeronautics industries.
I hold a 5-year EPSRC Fellowship to conduct research into design of experiments for the complex nonparametric and mechanistic models required for modern scientific and industrial problems.
I have been an investigator on research grants and contracts totalling more than £2.4 million and have extensive research links with industry and government, including GlaxoSmithKline and Dstl. I currently supervise two Postdocs and five PhD students, having previously supervised eight PhDs to completion. I am an Associate Editor for Technometrics and a member of the EPSRC Peer Review College.
