Research interests

I am a statistician with research interests spanning:

  • multivariate statistics (principal component analysis, in particular)
  • bootstrapping and other resampling methods
  • nonparametric statistics
  • biostatistics
  • statistical epidemiology

I am also passionate about statistical computing, free software and machine learning. My work is funded by the Scottish Government's Centre of Expertise on Animal Disease Outbreaks (EPIC).

My personal webpage has information on a number of my R software packages, as well as links to various statistical and computing resources.

ORCID ID: 0000-0003-2961-6573.
