Research Interests

Visit my homepage for details and for potential PhD, MS, and Honours projects. Briefly, my interests fall into four broad categories:

  • Population modelling of seabirds, sharks, and other marine megafauna: parameter estimation, demographic modelling, and management implications
  • Our changing ocean: experimental design to measure consequences of global climate change on marine organisms
  • Modelling chemical sensors: development of analytical methods for chemical sensors and sensor arrays
  • Model uncertainty and misspecification: model averaging and post hoc adjustments for the construction of improved confidence intervals
