Research overview

My research interests span the areas of Bayesian inference, spatial and spatio-temporal modelling approaches, measuring biodiversity, mark-recapture surveys, distance sampling and wildlife population assessment. A common thread in most of my research is Bayesian spatial and spatio-temporal modelling using integrated nested Laplace approximation (INLA) and stochastic partial differential equation approaches (SPDE). In the case of measuring biodiversity, I have a specific interest in developing measures for quantifying biodiversity changes in space and time, as well as the mathematical properties of these measures and their practical interpretation in terms of different aspects of measuring biodiversity.
