I am an accredited statistician and I have an M.A. in Mathematics from Cambridge University, an M.Sc. in Statistics from the University of Wales and a Ph.D. in Mathematical Statistics from the University of Birmingham, U.K.
I have 50 years experience of statistical consulting, including 28 years with CSIRO in Canberra. I have extensive practical experience of applying statistics in many disciplines including ecology, agronomy, horticulture, forestry, soil science and road safety research.
My contributions to projects have ranged from relatively limited involvement to major contributions leading to co-authorship of papers with my collaborators. My collaborators have included many Honours and Ph.D. students at ANU, particularly in the Fenner School, as well as clients from a variety of other private and public sector organisations. In recent years I have been a member of David Lindenmayer's group, and have worked closely with many other members of that group.
I have served the Statistical Society of Australia and the International Biometric Society in various roles.
