I am a data scientist with a PhD in process model uncertainty using Bayesian approaches. My current research focus is on transdisciplinary research in data methods & lifecycle and integration of farm sensor data. I grew up in the Kaipara Harbour in a rural farming community and am passionate about working for New Zealand’s agricultural and environmental sectors. In addition to my research interests, I regularly collaborate with scientists as a statistical consultant.
