My present research interests range across the fields of spatial analysis, high performance computing and simulation, and medical and agricultural applications. I have a strong interest in the modelling and analysis of extremely large datasets, particularly those comprised of multivariate, spatially indexed data. The practical applications motivating my interest include the modelling of house price information in Dublin, as well as evaluating the speed and cost of abrupt climate change. I am involved in the area of fraud detection, particularly in terms of the development of analytical tools for the detection of fraudulent behaviour in money transfers. I continue to research in the medical imaging area; current interests include the reconstruction of "clean" medical images from "noisy" scan data and the analysis of tumour shape as a prognostic indicator for time to death in cancer studies.
My publications to data are mainly in the fields of statistical climatology and statistical methodology. I have also been in receipt of a number of research travel awards.
