Lecturer in Statistics and Probability, School of Mathematical and Physical Sciences at the University of Sussex, and Group Leader for the Turing's programme in Data-centric Engineering.
Andrew was previously a Postdoctoral Research Associate working jointly in the Departments of Mathematics and Chemical Engineering at Imperial College, working with Prof. Grigorios Pavliotis and Prof. Serafim Kalliadasis. Prior to this, he was a postdoctoral research assistant in the Wolfson Center for Mathematical Biology at the University of Oxford, working with Prof. Radek Erban.
He completed his PhD at the University of Warwick under the supervision of Prof. Andrew Stuart. The main topic of his research was the derivation of stochastic models for protein transport on rough and/or rapidly fluctuating cellular membranes, using methods such as stochastic homogenization to coarse grain these models. Prior to this, he had completed an MSc in Scientific Computing also at the University of Warwick, and earlier a MSc in Mathematics from the University of Malta where he studied some problems related to Quantum Logic.
Andrew's interests lie generally within the intersection between computation, analysis and probability, with a particular focus on applications in biology and chemistry, particularly systems involving stochasticity and/or multiple scales. These include the analysis and construction of MCMC-based methods for sampling from probability distributions, coarse graining of stochastic models involving multiple scales, classical and stochastic homogenization of PDEs and SDEs, and the Bayesian formulation of inverse problems.
