Personal Interests

I spend my free time playing board games and miniature games, with the odd roleplaying game when time permits. Over the years I've collected a quite a few board games, there will be a celebration when I reach 500 - which could be in the next few years.

While not playing with numbers I enjoy reading about numbers, science-fiction and comic books. Childrens, or young adult, books are also a favourite (yes that means Harry Potter, His Dark Materials and others).

I'm a secret lemonade drinker.

Films and series are the third love of my life (my trinity of books, films and games). I enjoy watching a variety of films, from David Cronenberg's 'Videodrome' to Ingmar Bergman's 'Seventh Seal' via Steven Spielberg's 'Close Encounters of the Third Kind'. The animated films by Studio Ghibli are also amazing.

Other activities

I am vice-chair of the Young Statisticians' Section (YSS) of the Royal Statistical Scociety (RSS), and work actively within the RSS to engage career young statisticans.
