I am a lecturer in statistical and mathematical modelling within SRUC’s Centre for Epidemiology and Planetary Health.

My main research and teaching expertise is around quantitative methods in epidemiology (stats and mathematical modelling) with primary interests in 1) the measurement of antimicrobial resistance; 2) rural active travel; 3) community food production.

R is the main programming language I use.

I play an active part in my community in Errol, near Perth, creating and maintaining paths, and planting fruit & nut trees in public spaces.

Areas of expertise and interests

  • Climate, Environment and Wildlife
  • Livestock and Fishing
  • Policy

I'm currently working on

My main areas of interest are:

  • The measurement of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) using a method called “Quantitative Estimation of AMR”. Our thesis is that we can gather more information regarding AMR from samples which will be useful for making clinical predictions and more.
  • Teaching stats and maths (and their benefits) to undergrads & postgrads
  • The opportunities of including rural areas in the policy area known as “20 minute neighbourhoods”
  • Community resilience in the face of climate breakdown through local food production

My professional highlights

  • Several times speaker at the Society for Veterinary Epidemiology & Preventive Medicine
  • Fellow of the Royal Statistical Society
