I am a postdoctoral researcher collaborating with the Australian Institute for Marine Science (AIMS). I investigate how mathematical modelling and computational statistics can provide insight into coral recovery processes on the Great Barrier Reef under increasing environmental disturbances.
I am passionate about the application of mathematical, statistical and computational techniques to solve real world problems. In particular, I am interested in applications that assist our understanding of complex biological and ecological systems. I firmly believe in keeping things as simple as they can be (but no simpler).
I also have and interest in the development of advanced Monte Carlo sampling schemes for Bayesian inference for challenging stochastic models. With a background in computer science, programming and High Performance Computing (HPC), I am always interested in algorithm implementation for efficient utilisation of modern, massively-parallel, computer hardware.
