BNP Secretary
Candidate Statement
I am very excited to be nominated to run for secretary of the Bayesian Nonparametric section of ISBA. Bayesian Nonparametric statistics is at the core of my research and I would be honoured to serve in this role. Both our community and its impact on the broader scientific audience have grown considerably in the last few years: I am committed to continuing the great work past and current officers have been doing. It is my belief the Nonparametric section has the crucial role of making sure our community retains its identity while also being forward-thinking and very open to collaborations and shared initiatives.

I am Assistant Professor of Statistics at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland, where I am the coordinator of the Master in Data Science. I am also affiliated to TILDA (The Irish Longitudinal Study on Ageing) as a Visiting Research Fellow. I have recently taken on the role of Associate Editor for Computational Statistics & Data Analysis.
