My main role is as a statistical consultant in the Statistical Consulting Centre.

About me

After working for one year as a statistical advisor on an agricultural research station in Indonesia, I joined the centre at the end of 2010. Prior to this, I had completed a Bachelor of Science degree with Honours in Statistics and Psychology at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne (UK) followed by a Master of Science degree in Biometry at the University of Reading (UK).

My interests are in Applied Statistics; particularly applications in environmental, agricultural and ecological research, and I have consulting experience in general and logistic regression, modelling using restricted maximum likelihood estimation (REML), experimental design and statistical training.
