Important notes about contact (especially e-mail):

E-mail and spam being what it is today means that I have been very aggressive in my use of spam filters and in the filtering of my e-mail. This means that there is a high likelihood that mail sent to my e-mail address (unless we are in regular and recent correspondence) will end up being filtered out and so never seen by me. Other e-mail can end up in large mailboxes which I will only very infrequently check to see if there is a legitimate message amongst the junk.

My apologies if this has unduly inconvenienced you. If you really must reach me immediately and e-mail does not seem to work, phone me.

Again, my apologies for any inconvenience all of the above causes you.

Research

Selected papers and talks: here.

My entry in the research directory for the Faculty of Mathematics.

My research interests lie in three separate but inter-related areas. They are

I also have a general interest in statistics, science and public policy and have written a few papers on these topics as well. These and other selected papers and talks can be found here.

Graduate Students

Students I have supervised as well as access to some of their research essays/theses.

Statistics and Computing

I am no longer the Editor-in-Chief of the cross-disciplinary journal Statistics and Computing.

To Quail info

Software

There is a variety of software which my colleagues, students, and I have written over the years which is freely available. This includes the project of many person-years and MBs of code called Quail.
  1. Quail is a programming environment for quantitative analysis written in Common Lisp. For more information on its current state and how to access the software, check out the Quail homepage.
  2. Eikosograms ; an interactive tool for teaching the axioms of probability including the concepts of conditional probability, Bayes rule, and conditional independence.
  3. Other software. A miscellany of mostly code and data sets (including many snippets written for courses) These might be in S (or R), Quail, java, and even visual basic.
