I am a Lecturer at the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Cyprus since August 2023.

In 2022-2023 I was a lecturer at Imperial College London, at the Department of Mathematics and Imperial X, a new center for driving innovation in digital technologies, machine learning and artificial intelligence.

I am part of Machine Learning & Global Health Network, a multi-organisation network across UK, Denmark, Singapore and Germany.

Before, I was a Postdoctoral Researcher and Junior Research Fellow at the Department of Computer Science at the University of Oxford and Wolfson College and a Research Associate at the Department of Mathematics at Imperial College London advised by Seth Flaxman.

I did my PhD in Oxford Statistics Department advised by Francois Caron and Yee Whye Teh.

Leadership in Statistics and Machine Learning Community

Research News


My research intersts lie in the broad area of statistical machine learning with broader goal to build methods that combine the strengths of statistics and computation aspiring to answer scientific questions with impact in real life. 

My research interests include Bayesian non parametrics,  random graph modelling, temporal and spatiotemporal interaction data, stochastic processes, and deep generative models with focus on explainable Machine Learning.  The application areas I look at are epidemiology, social science and the environment.


I am co-supervising Iwona Hawlyruk on her PhD on Bayesian Statistics and Machine Learning methods applied in Epidemiology.

If you are interested in a PhD at Imperial working with me, feel free to send me an email to discuss this.
