Project/Thesis Possibilities

I would consider supervising any project in the area of statistical ecology or applied statistics for 4th year, MSc or PhD students.

Research Interests

Overdispersion
Model-averaging
Meta-analysis and meta-regression

My research interests have arisen from collaboration with ecologists, particularly those working in conservation biology and marine science. The emphasis in much of my work is in providing new methods of analysis that are readily understood by other scientists. You can see a schools-video with an example of the work I do here.
