Distinguished Professor Marti Anderson

Chair in Statistics

New Zealand Institute for Advanced Study

After obtaining a BA in Biology from Occidental (a liberal arts college in Los Angeles CA, USA), I pursued graduate study at the University of Sydney in Australia, where I did a Graduate Diploma in Zoology (first class honours) and a PhD in Marine Ecology with Professor Tony Underwood (achieving the Jabez-King-Heydon prize for the most meritorious PhD thesis), followed by a Masters in Mathematical Statistics (with merit) with Professor John Robinson. After a post-doctoral fellowship with the Institute of Marine Ecology in Sydney, I then took up an academic position as Lecturer in Statistics at the University of Auckland in 1999. I came to Massey University to take up a Professorial Chair in Statistics at the Albany campus in 2009. I joined the New Zealand Institute for Advanced Study (NZIAS) in 2011.


Roles and Responsibilities

Deputy Head of Institute, INMS

Head of Statistics, INMS

Co-director of the Coastal-Marine Research Group (C-MRG)

I am an ecological statistician. My work spans several disciplines, from basic biology and ecology through to mathematical and applied statistics. My core research is in community ecology, biodiversity, multivariate analysis, experimental design and resampling methods. My focus is to develop novel statistical methods for the analysis of ecological communities, including appropriate sampling algorithms and models for making valid statistical inferences in these high-dimensional multi-factorial systems.

Research Interests

I am an ecological statistician. My work spans several disciplines, from basic biology and ecology through to mathematical and applied statistics. My core research is in the areas of community ecology, biodiversity, multivariate analysis, experimental design and resampling methods. My focus is to develop novel multivariate statistical methods for the analysis of ecological communities, including appropriate underlying sampling algorithms and models for making valid statistical inferences in these high-dimensional multi-factorial systems.

Project Title: New robust solutions to the multivariate Behrens-Fisher problem

Imagine sampling two communities of butterflies and asking: do they differ? Testing for a (mean) difference is not possible if one community is more variable than the other. For a single measurement (e.g. community diversity), this is `Behrens-Fisher', one of the oldest problems in statistics. We will combine bootstrapping methods with distance-based tests, avoiding classical assumptions, to yield novel robust solutions to the multivariate (multi-species) Behrens-Fisher problem. This work will generate new possibilities for simultaneous inferences on means and variances in ecology. More broadly, it will crack current barriers to analysing any multivariate dataset where classical approaches fail.
