Research Interests

My main statistical research interests are in the following areas:

  • Statistical methodology applied to food authenticity studies.
  • Bayesian risk modelling.
  • Bayesian spatial-temporal modelling.
  • Climate envelope models for ecological data sets.
  • Constrained optimisation for ordinal response regression models.

Current and Recent Projects

  • Creating a scientific definition for New Zealand Manuka Honey.
  • Estimating collision risk for bats at wind farms.
  • The effect of between-sample heterogeneity on standard statistical model selection methods.
  • Probabilistic drought risk in forested landscapes.
