Research Interests

My main area of research is in the use of statistical and mathematical modelling techniques in veterinary epidemiology and in the field of animal welfare.

Future Plans

In the future I intend to develop the mathematical modelling framework which I developed to model the interaction between environmental and animal infection with Jaagsiekte retrovirus to other management systems and to other pathogens with an environmental component. On the theoretical side, I am particularly interested in the properties of statistical estimators for epidemiological parameters and in the estimation of parameters for use in mathematical models. I am interested in applying ideas from the field of statistical process control to topics such as the assessment of anthelmintic resistance. Having been a member of an animal ethics and experimentation committee for several years, I am keen to contribute to the development of the role of statisticians in this type of group.
