I am an applied Bayesian statistician from the University of Exeter in the UK. I will be working here at QUT for 3 months, supervised by Kerrie Mengersen, on a project aimed at developing methodologies for reducing the societal impact of poor air quality, resulting from the construction at Queen's Wharf. This will involve developing spatial-temporal models for air quality in the city centre and exploring approaches for communicating this information to the public to influence sustainable transport behaviour. I completed my PhD in 2016, in which I developed approaches and statistical modelling methodologies for representing European windstorm wind fields in order to understand the relationship between extreme wind speeds and insured risk. Most recently I have worked as a postdoctoral research associate, developing novel Bayesian statistical methods for social sciences behavioural and survey data, with the aim of understanding and influencing transport behaviour within the city of Exeter.
