Efficiently modelling non-stationarity in ecological spatial models (Event)

Activity: Membership typesMembership of research network


EPSRC funded networking project with CREEM

The 6-month feasibility project will set up an international collaborative network, bringing together researchers from multiple disciplines with a range of research interests in ecology and statistics. These include (i) spatial management of ecosystems that are subject to environmental fluctuation, long-term change, and changing demands from human users for ecosystem services such as food and energy production (ii) ecological interactions in complex landscapes including population dynamics, trophic interactions, epidemics and disease transmission (iii) animal movement and the analysis of movement data in marine and terrestrial systems (iv) statistical modelling of movement data (v) developing flexible and computationally efficient Bayesian spatial models for a wide range of applications. The networking project will provide an important opportunity for this group to form stronger connections between institutions in order to pioneer research that is at the forefront of developing cutting-edge statistical methodology and software to address common issues of data complexity and computational constraints.
