I lecture statistics at the University of Adelaide. My areas of interest are bioinformatics, phylogenetics and biostatistics, with a focus on human history. However, I enjoy talking about any statistical problem from any field of research. I really enjoy finding and communicating solutions to research questions, and helping people explore their data. Since I'm an early career researcher, I aim to collaborate with others as much as possible.
