Students interested in undertaking a self-funded PhD with me are encouraged to get in contact!

Possible project areas include:

  • Inverse problems for nanopore sensors
  • Category Theory for architecture definition in systems engineering
  • Bayesian methods for data integration in materials science
  • Mixed methods (AI/statistics/social sciences/humanities) for understanding mechanisms of inequality in science.
