Professor of StatisticsDepartment of Statistics
I am a University Lecturer in Statistics, and also a Fellow of Keble College. This year I lecture on Statistical Theory and Time Series In the Doctoral Training Centre for Systems Biology I also lecture on Statistical Inference for Networks. Previously I also lectured on Markov Chain Monte Carlo and Applied Bayesian Statistics. For course material from previous years see also a5 Statistics, Part A Statistics HT2004, b8 Statistics, and Stochastic Simulation.
Recently I have also become an EPSRC Advanced Fellow in connection with the CABDyN Research Cluster on complex agent-based dynamic networks.
Lecture notes - note that these cover a somewhat different syllabus:
Peter Clifford's lecture notes
Mary Lunn's lecture notes
For regression and ANOVA see also the sections on linear models in Dan Lunn's lecture notes
