Current Research

I am currently working at with the SRUC Epidemiology Research Unit the River and Lochs Institute. At the SRUC I mainly work on network analysis of animal movements, automating disesase reporting and building online applications, whilst with the RLI, I do some programming, data analysis and statistical modelling. I also do a little bit of website design and work a lot with the statistical software R. For full details please see the programming page.
