I was originally born in London, where I lived until I was 13.  My family then moved to Galway in The Republic of Ireland.  Prior to joining the University of Wolverhampton in 2012 I previously held positions in The University of St Andrews and NUI, Galway.

Statistical modelling, especially of count data, with particular emphasis on zero-inflated data.

Statistical modelling, especially of count data, with particular emphasis on zero-inflated data and assessment of model fit.

I am a fellow of the Royal Statistical Society, and a member of the International Statistical Modelling Society
