I am currently Executive Editor for Journal of Statistical Planning and Inference, and Associate Editor for Journal of the American Statistical Association, having previously been Associate Editor for Scandinavian Journal of Statistics, Statistica Sinica, and Annals of Statistics. I have received an EPSRC Advanced Research Fellowship, 2001-2006, and have been funded by the NSF.

My research is predominately in Bayesian methods, including nonparametric, asymptotics, computational and methodological and foundational.
