I am a PhD candidate in Statistical Science at UCL (10/2021-), supervised by Alexandros Beskos and Samuel Livingstone. I am currently funded by Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research. Before PhD, I was a research assistant at Hitotsubashi University, supervised by Toshihiro Yamada, and then worked as a quantitative analyst at MUFG Bank, Ltd. for two years. 

Research:  My research interests lie in statistical and numerical methods for stochastic processes. My current research focuses on developing effective numerical schemes and approximate  (closed-form) likelihoods for improved parameter estimation of  Stochastic Differential Equations (SDEs).
