My research is based upon the development of Bayesian statistical methods with primary application to environmental and health data.
Current methodological research focuses on spatial and spatio-temporal statistics, time-series analysis, methods for the integration of multi-scale sources of data and models for understanding the health consequences of exposure to (multiple) pollutants and changes in climate.
Previous areas of work and research have included non-communicable disease epidemiology and sociology of health.
