Prior to joining Oxford, I was a Lecturer then Reader of Computational Statistics and Machine Learning at the Gatsby Neuroscience Unit, UCL from 2007 to 2012. This was followed by two years as a postdoctoral fellow at University of California, Berkeley, then as Lee Kuan Yew Postdoctoral Fellow at the National University of Singapore.

Research Interests
My research interests lie in the general areas of machine learning, Bayesian statistics and computational statistics. Although my group works on a variety of topics ranging from theoretical, through to methodological and applications, I am personally particularly interested in three (overlapping) themes: Bayesian nonparametrics and probabilistic learning, large scale machine learning, and deep learning.
