I am a biostatistician in the Biostatistics Centre at the University of Otago, a role I have held since 2004. Most of my work involves collaborating on a wide range of research projects in the health sciences, particularly in paediatric obesity, sleep, and physical activity; respiratory epidemiology, mostly asthma and COPD; dentistry; and health systems. I also work on statistical methods research, mostly topics inspired by these collaborations.
Prior to my current position I was a software metrics and machine learning researcher in the Department of Information Science at the same institution.
