Monique A Ladds
I am an applied statistician with experience in biology and ecology (specifically physiology and fisheries) and disaster economics. My current focus is understanding the assumptions underlying ecosystem models. To do so, I am working as a part the Managed Seas project (http://sustainableseaschallenge.co.nz/programmes/managed-seas) for the New Zealand government’s program Sustainable Seas. Primarily I use supervised and unsupervised machine learning tools to explore the assumptions built into ecosystem models.
