Head of Institute of Fundamental Sciences - Institute of Fundamental Sciences
I am Professor of Statistics and Head of the Institute of Fundamental Sciences.
I am interested in developing new statistical theory and methods to solve problems in network tomography, nonparametric smoothing, and spatial statistics. I am also interested in the application of statistical methods in general, but I particularly like to focus on examples arising in transportation science, epidemiology and medicine.
Professor in Biochemistry /Biomedical Science - Institute of Fundamental Sciences
I am a biochemist with a background in human physiological biochemistry, protein biochemistry and regulation of gene expression. My research interests turned towards molecular genetics with a focus on the underlying causes of Malignant Hyperthermia in humans, but I remain a biochemist at heart. I work closely with anaesthetists at Palmerston North hospital on DNA analysis for Malignant Hyperthermia and calcium homeostasis in skeletal muscle. I run a research laboratory as well as an IANZ accredited diagnostic laboratory for Malignant Hyperthermia and teach a range of subjects including DNA structure, function and analysis, metabolic biochemistry and regualtion of gene expression.
