My research interests include developing and applying spatial statistical methods to better understand the distribution, dynamics, and health of human populations around the world.

My work

I am a senior research fellow in the School of Geography and Environmental Science at the University of Southampton working with the WorldPop Research Group. I have a background in Geography. My current research relates to spatial demography and estimating populations in the absence of a complete census. I do this by using a combination of georeferenced household surveys and satellite remote sensing data. As part of my work I develop several R packages. I also teach courses on programming in R and Python for spatial analysis.
