About me

I am currently a PhD student at the University of Glasgow within the Inference, Dynamics and Interaction group. I work under the supervision of John H. Williamson and Sebastian Stein. My PhD is funded by "Closed-Loop Data Science for Complex, Computationally- and Data-Intensive Analytics, EPSRC Project: EP/R018634/1".

Interactive, Animated Representations of Probabilistic Models

The title of my PhD is "Interactive, Animated Representations of Probabilistic Models". As the title implies, my research focuses on the creation of novel representations of probabilistic models that incorporate animated and interactive visualizations for the communication of the uncertainty about the true value of the model's variables. The research question that I will try to answer in the contexts of this research will be whether these novel representations of probabilistic models help people better understand and interpret models and make explainable and rational decisions.
