Research interests

My principal research interests lie in statistics and data analytics education, looking at ways we can adapt and modify our teaching practices. I am particularly interested in teaching practices for online learning and effective teaching of programming skills. 

I am also interested in the application and development of methods to environmental statistics and Bayesian inference and model selection
