Dr Sam Clifford
I’m a statistician working at Queensland University of Technology on a range of environmental and environmental health problems such as jaguar conservation, reef conservation, and air pollution and its health impacts. In addition, I teach mathematics and statistics to first year science students.
My undergrad was in applied and computational mathematics, focussing on fluid dynamics in my honours year. Over time, I drifted towards Bayesian statistical modelling, where I use semi-parametric regression and hierarchical modelling for spatial, temporal, and spatio-temporal modelling.
Between 2010 and 2013 I was a PhD student at ILAQH under the supervision of Professors Lidia Morawska and Kerrie Mengersen and Dr Sama Low Choy. After graduating, I was employed as a Postdoctoral Fellow at ILAQH to support the research being done across a variety of topics in air quality. I still collaborate with my former colleagues on a variety of topics including occupational exposure, child health, atmospheric processes, exposure assessment, and instrumentation.
