I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Engineering Science, where I am an academic member of both the Machine Learning Research Group and the Oxford-Man Institute. I am also a Tutorial Fellow at Lady Margaret Hall. Prior to joining Oxford, I was a postdoctoral associate in the MIT Media Lab, where I remain as a research affiliate, and received my PhD degree from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL), Lausanne, Switzerland.

Research interests

My main research interests concern signal processing and machine learning techniques for analysing network data, and their applications in studying questions across social and economic sciences.


I teach Engineering subjects (Mathematics/Electronic and Information Engineering) at LMH. In addition, I teach Signal Processing for the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Autonomous Intelligent Machines and Systems, and B14 Signal Analysis and B14 Information Engineering Laboratory for the MEng in Engineering Science course in the Department of Engineering Science.
