News: I moved to my Chair in Statistics in GSOE on the 1st August 2014
having spent the previous 7 and a bit years as Professor of Biostatistics in the Vet School.
At Langford I was for a year Programme Director of the Animal Behaviour and Welfare degree
I also taught on the BVSc, BSc ABW and MSc. Meat Science courses.
My teaching in 2014/15 consists of:
Teaching statistics courses (with Liz Washbrook) for Masters and PhD students in GSOE;
Short course/Workshop teaching for the Centre for Multilevel Modelling.
Areas of research
My research is in Bayesian statistics,
multilevel modelling, complex random effect modelling,
applied statistics including analysis of data in the fields of
education, animal behaviour, veterinary epidemiology, health, public health and bird ecology.
