Senior Lecturer in Statistics

Main interest: evolutionary trees (phylogenies)

– space of trees has a CAT(0) geometry

– statistical analysis is via geometry in tree-space

– areas include combinatorial optimization, stochastic processes, central limit theorems

More generally:

– Statistical analysis of branching structures in biology

– Statistics and geometry on manifold – stratified spaces
