I have a broad range of skills in veterinary epidemiology, animal health economics, and production medicine.  A significant part of my role at Massey University is providing researchers with guidance on study design and data analysis.  My particular areas of expertise are:

  • Animal identification and traceability systems
  • Network analysis theory and methodology
  • Animal health economics (including farm level and industry level decision making)
  • Disease simulation modelling (including compartmental and individual-based models)
  • Designing national syndromic surveillance systems
  • Analyzing ‘big’ animal health and production data sets
  • Developing web-based interfaces to communicate research findings
  • Programming in R, Python, and C languages


If you require assistance with study design or data analysis, please get in touch via e-mail or through the EpiCentre website.
