  • More About Me

    I work on research and consulting projects at the interface of statistics and environmental science. To date, I have worked on projects in hydrology, ecology, epidemiology, earth sciences, biosecurity, agriculture, and oil & gas. My strengths are in physical statistical modelling, Bayesian inference, nonparametric statistics, and high performance computing in data science.

  • Even More About Me

    When I'm not doing research, you can find me doing one of the activities in the state space:

    S = {eating, sleeping, feeding cats, lifting weights, trading stocks, mountain biking, scuba diving}.

Research Interests

My research interests are at the interface of applied statistics, data science, high performance computing and environmental science. I work as a research scientist on multidisciplinary projects to solve challenging problems in fields such as hydrology, ecology, agriculture, epidemiology, biosecurity, and earth sciences.

Currently, I am working on research projects in the following areas:

  • Physical Statistical Modelling
  • Spatio-temporal Statistical Modelling
  • Model Emulation and Surrogate Modelling
  • Nonparametric Statistical Modelling of Temporal Environmental Processes
  • Design of Computer Experiments
  • Optimal Design of Experiments and Environmental Monitoring Networks

Please get in touch with me if you are interested in collaborating or are looking for a consulting statistician with my skill set.
