Andrew R Gray

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.

Beth Jefferies

Beth is a Professor of Psychology at the University of York, UK. Her research seeks to understand the neural basis of semantic cognition and language, and disorders affecting these aspects of cognition. She uses multiple neuroscientific methods, including neuropsychology, neuroimaging (MEG, fMRI) and brain stimulation to investigate how concepts are represented and flexibly retrieved.
