Areas of Interest

My research at the moment consists of spatial modelling in the ACEMS Jaguar project, spatio-temporal modelling of a range of air quality measures and its potential health impact on primary school students, and Bayesian modelling with numerical differential equation solvers.

I’m particularly interested in non-parametric regression methods such as spline regression and Gaussian processes.


I teach SEB113 – Quantitative Methods for Science, a first year mathematics and statistics unit for the ST01 Bachelor of Science at QUT. It combines a range of linear algebra, calculus, probability and statistics topic in a framework of quantitative analysis with modelling rather than just statistical testing.
