My research and consulting capabilities span a large range of areas including applied statistics, big data, economic models and forecasting and finance. I have published widely in the areas of Statistics, Applied Mathematics, Biostatistics, Bioinformatics and Finance. I have also produced in excess of 80 articles with at least 20% in A* ranked journals.
The University Centre in Actuarial and Financial Big Data Analytics was established under my leadership, to help Bond University establish itself as a significant player in the Big Data and Analytics research space.
