I am the Director of the STOR-i Doctoral Training Centre and I am currently a Professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. I was Head of the Statistics Section of the Department from 1996-2000 and then Head of Department from 2000-2007.

I have a long history of supervising PhD students and I am currently supervising a number of PhDs in the department.

I have wide interests in extreme value theory, methods and applications.


• Multivariate extreme value and joint probability problems
• Time series and covariate modelling for extreme values
• Structuring asympototically justified models to capture process structure


• Environmental modelling in hydrology and oceanography
• Financial modelling
