I am a Research Officer at the Centre of Science & Technology, Research & Development (CSTRAD), Ministry of Defence, Brunei. My primary task is to provide data analysis and decision support to strategic acquisition projects. I also assist in statistical analyses for defence-related research.
My research interests lie in statistical theory, methods and computation, with a special inclination towards social science applications. I obtained my PhD in Statistics from the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) in October 2018. My PhD project explored the use of Fisher information-dependent priors in a vector space framework for regression, classification, and variable selection. My supervisors were Dr. Wicher Bergsma and Prof. Irini Moustaki. I also obtained an MSc in Statistics from LSE in 2014.
I graduated from Warwick University, completing the 4-year MMORSE degree in 2010. As my final year project, I used Bradley-Terry models applied to English Premier League football data. This project was supervised by Prof. David Firth.
