I also have a basic official page, which includes my contact details.
I am a Lecturer in Statistics at the School of Mathematics, Statistics & Actuarial Science, University of Kent.
Here is a link to my School publication list webpage.
I am the School's representative for UCU and maintain the branch webpage as branch deputy secretary.

One previous project in this area was with Dr Jim Groombridge on "MHC diversity and emerging infectious disease in parrot populations on Mauritius" which was awarded £215,621 over 36 months by the Leverhulme Trust. Also see this article about the project
I also collaborated with Prof David Ormrod on an ESRC-funded research project titled "Pathways to modernization and the separation of town and countryside" to investigate urban and agricultural rent movements in London and the South-East between 1580 and 1914. We held a colloquium in April 2009, more details of which are available at our project website http://www.historic-rents.co.uk/.
I spoke at ISI99 in Helsinki in August 1999 (the International Statistical Institute's biennial conference) on some of my work with Frank Ball. Our paper appears in the ISI99 proceedings, which is available on the ISI99 web site in PDF format and locally in PDF and also in PostScript. The citation details are:

I have worked with colleagues on assessing the effectiveness of protected areas for preventing deforestations and we published the following article:

I have worked also in medical statistics, publishing the following two articles:

From September 1996 to October 1997 I was the statistician of the Winnicott research unit in the Department of Psychology (now the School of Psychology and Clinical Language Sciences ) at the University of Reading, where I worked on studies of the effects of maternal postnatal depression on infant development.
In December 1996 I gained my PhD (submitted Sep 96, viva Nov 96, graduated Dec 96) from the School (now Department) of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Bath, where I'd been from October 1993 to September 1996. My thesis was titled "Probability and analysis for a hyperbolic coupled PDE system". The abstract is available as PostScript, PDF, HTML or plain text. Also available is the abstract for a talk I gave on my work, as HTML or plain text.
Most of my thesis has been published in the Electronic Journal
of Probability. I have a sole authored paper (paper 14) in Volume
5 (2000) entitled Travelling
waves for a certain first-order coupled PDE system which is
available from there as PDF or as PostScript.

A second paper, joint with David Williams, appears as paper 20 of
Volume 6 (2001) entitled Weak
Solutions for a Simple Hyperbolic System which is available from
there as PDF or as PostScript.

Before that I studied Mathematics (1989-1992) at Churchill College, University of Cambridge and did the Diploma in Mathematical Statistics (1992-1993).
Before that I went to Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School in Faversham from 1982 to 1989.
