I am a statistical ecologist based in the Centre for Research into Ecological and Environmental Modelling (CREEM), where I am Director, and School of Mathematics and Statistics, where I am a Reader.
There are two main strands to my work:
- Use of computer intensive methods to fit and compare stochastic models of wildlife population dynamics. I mostly work on algorithms called particle filters..
- Development of methods and software for estimating the size, density and distribution of wild animal and plant populations. I mostly work on a group of related methods called distance sampling.
For more information, please see my personal homepage.
My main research areas are: (1) Development of methods and software for estimating the size, density and distribution of wild animal and plant populations. I mostly work on a group of related methods called distance sampling. (2) Use of computer intensive methods to fit and compare stochastic models of wildlife population dynamics. Here, I mostly work on algorithms called particle filters. For more details about my work, including links to my publications, please see my personal home page.
