Research interests

My research interests lie in the areas of

  • optimal experimental design;
  • the analysis of categorical data.

Optimal experimental design involves allocating the (often, limited) resources of a physical experiment to, essentially, maximise the amount of "information" that the experiment provides. Increasingly, I am interested in phenomena which are explained by a model which is implemented by some computationally expensive computer code.

I am also interested in categorical data analysis, particularly incomplete contingency tables. The main application of these has been estimating the number of people who inject drugs in England and Scotland.
