Headshot Zak Varty

I am a statistician, data scientist and educator.

I develop statistical methodology and data science solutions to solve challenging data problems. I am particularly interested in modelling environmental and industrial processes.

I work as a teaching fellow at Imperial College London. In my work, I lead courses and supervise research projects in statistics, data science and data ethics.

Previously, I completed my PhD in Statistics and Operational Research within the STOR-i CDT at Lancaster University. My PhD work combined point process models with techniques from extreme value theory and Bayesian inference to model induced earthquake activity.

When I am not in front of my computer, I enjoy distance running 🏃 and I love to read 📖. Ideally, these activities are accompanied by a good cup of coffee and a large slice of cake.
