Modelling the broadband propagation of marine mammal echolocation clicks for click-based population density estimates (2018-02) - Journal articlePassive acoustic monitoring with widely-dispersed hydrophones has been suggested as a cost-effective method to monitor population densities of echolocating marine mammals. This requires an estimate of the area around each ...
(2018-08-09) - Journal articleWe prove the statement in the title and exhibit examples of quotients of arbitrary nilpotency class. This answers a question by Holt.
(2018-07-05) - Journal itemComing up with Bayesian models for spatial data is easy, but performing inference with them can be challenging. Writing fast inference code for a complex spatial model with realistically‐sized datasets from scratch is ...
In situ generation of transverse magnetohydrodynamic waves from colliding flows in the solar corona (2018-07-09) - Journal articleTransverse magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) waves permeate the solar atmosphere and are a candidate for coronal heating. However, the origin of these waves is still unclear. In this Letter, we analyze coordinated observations ...
Statistical modelling of individual animal movement : an overview of key methods and a discussion of practical challenges (2017-10) - Journal articleWith the influx of complex and detailed tracking data gathered from electronic tracking devices, the analysis of animal movement data has recently emerged as a cottage industry among biostatisticians. New approaches of ...
