Data-Centric Engineering Group Leader, and Turing Fellow

Chris is a Professor of Statistics at Newcastle University and Group Leader for the data-centric engineering programme at the Turing.

Chris’ research aims to develop probabilistic numerical methods for simulation-based risk management. The use of computers to simulate physical governing equations introduces numerical and discretisation errors; his research aims to account for these with statistical methods, to provide a proper quantification of risk for decisions that are based on simulation output.
