I work as Assistant Professor on statistical ecology, dividing my time between teaching applied statistics to ecology and earth science students and research into the analyis of animal movement and distribution. In my research I focus on developing and applying statistical and measurement theory for the analysis of animal movement and distribution. Furthermore I am keen to enhance reproducibility this field though standardization and calibration of observation techniques as well as better storage, documentation and curation of observations and computer code.

Inferential statistics are concerned with making inferences based on relations found in the sample, to relations in the population. Inferential statistics help us decide, for example, whether the differences between groups that we see in our data are strong enough to provide support for our hypothesis that group differences exist in general, in the entire population.
