Assistant Professor and Statistician
I am an Assistant Professor and Statistician in the School of Computer Science at the University of Guelph (UG). My position is sponsored by the Saugeen Ojibway First Nations (SON), and is part of the SON-UG faculty partnership.
I have spent the bulk of my training and career working as part of multidisciplinary teams which have focused on public health assessment, and natural resource management. This has included collaborative projects with the Public Health Agency of Canada, Statistics Canada, Health Canada, Environment Canada, the B.C. Cancer Agency, the SON, McGill University, Laurentian University, and numerous departments within the UG.
My research spans the fields of Mathematics and Statistics, Biology, and Computer Science. This includes studying statistical methods for modelling populations with application to ecological and public health risk assessment, and testing sampling designs used to estimate population level parameters. More recently I've become interested in Human Computer Interaction, Software Design, and Community Engaged Scholarship.
I founded Farm To Fork with Danny Williamson. Over the past year we have worked with community groups and food security experts, along with 30 senior undergraduate students at the University of Guelph, to develop a system that will improve the quantity and quality of donations to local food banks and pantries. Support the Farm To Fork project.
