An exercise in eliciting a distribution and justifying it based on the available evidence.
I am a Professor of Statistics in the School of Mathematics and Statistics (SoMaS) at the University of Sheffield. My research interests are in Bayesian statistics, in particular uncertainty quantification (UQ) for complex computer models, eliciting probability distributions from experts, and applications of these in Health Economics.
I teach various undergraduate and postgraduate modules on statistics, and supervise PhD students (both within SoMaS and jointly with other departments) mainly on topics in UQ and in eliciting probability distributions.
I teach on the following modules:

I aim to recruit one or two PhD students each year, and applications are welcome at any time. If you are considering applying to me to supervise your PhD, please read this advice first.
