I am a lecturer at the University of Newcastle. Previously I’ve been a research fellow at the University of Sydney and a postdoctoral research fellow at the Australian National University under Alan Welsh and Samuel Müller. I’m currently building an R package to facilitate a graphical approach to model selection in linear and generalised linear models. We’re also investigating selecting on the fixed components in mixed models.

My research interests include robust statistics, data visualisation, model selection, econometric modelling, educational research, meat science and biostatistics. I have received a number of citations for my teaching and I was awarded first prize for the best oral presentation by a student at the Australian Young Statisticians Conference (2013) as well as the EJG Pitman Prize for the most outstanding talk presented by a young statistician at the Australian Statistical Conference (2012).
