Research

 

Our research focuses on the development of statistical methods for solving real-world data problems. Sometimes these methods are applicable in a wide range of fields (e.g. when developing general classes of statistical models such as Markov-switching generalized additive models), whereas in other cases the method development is tailored to the particular data problem at hand (e.g. when developing statistical tools for estimating the abundance of marine mammals).

Our expertise centres around the following areas:

  • hidden Markov models
  • nonparametric modelling
  • statistical ecology
  • economic applications 
  • medical statistics and statistical methods in epidemiology
