I am Senior Lecturer in the Department of Mathematics at King's College London

Between the years of 2018 and 2021, I held an EPSRC Innovation Fellowship for the project "Multivariate Max-stable Processes with Application to the Forecasting of Multiple Hazards


My research activity centres around extreme value statistics, with strong focus on detecting and forecasting spatio-temporal trends in extreme events.


For over 15 years, my research in extreme value theory has been informed as much as driven by a number of applications arising in hydrology (heavy rainfall, sea level rise) demography (supercentenarian’s lifespan), public health, and more recently, in the energy sector (e.g. electricity demand, safety issues in nuclear infrastructure).
