My research interests mainly concerns spatial and temporal considerations of population processes within the fields of ecology and epidemiology, how this can be modeled and how to fit models to data. For the latter, I mainly use Bayesian statistics implemented with Markov Chain Monte Carlo techniques.
At the Shine lab, my main focus is Hierarchical Bayesian modeling of cane toad movement, currently focusing on individual differences in movement behavior, with the aim of understanding how the toads may have changed their movement behavior. I am also developing methods for assessing synchrony in animal movement.
