Overview

  • I am a senior statistician with over 30 years of experience in data analysis. My specialties are environmental applications and spatial statistics. I rely heavily on solid theory and efficient computation. I am experienced coding and using the R software. I have been instrumental in numerous interdisciplinary collaborations of a wide variety in fields such as engineering, chemistry, earth sciences, hydrology, marine biology and ecology, environmental sciences, climate change, global ecology, bio-geochemistry, economics.
