I am a senior lecturer with the National Institute for Applied Statistics Research Australia (NIASRA) at the University of Wollongong. My interests lie in pretty much everything relating to spatio-temporal statistics and the tools which enable it.

I completed my PhD in 2012 at the University of Sheffield, UK in the Department of Automatic Control and Systems Engineering before carrying out brief post-docs at the University of Edinburgh with the School of Informatics and the University of Bristol with the Department of Maths and the School of Geographical Sciences. I was a senior research fellowship with NIASRA until January 2017.

I have had the privilege to work with some great people on several exciting projects since I started my PhD. More information on these on the Projects page. I also (try to) regularly update my blog with notes which could be of interest to others but largely to me in the future. If you are new to this site and are interested in spatio-temporal modelling and/or computational statistics with R feel free to subscribe to the blog (by clicking on the folder icon on the left), I rarely update more than once a month so I will not be spamming your inbox!
