Bayesian multi-species modelling of non-negative continuous ecological data with a discrete mass at zero (University of St Andrews, 2015) - Thesis
Effects of a scientific echo sounder on the behavior of short-finned pilot whales (Globicephala macrorhynchus) (2016-09-07) - Journal articleActive echo sounding devices are often employed for commercial or scientific purposes in the foraging habitats of marine mammals. We conducted an experiment off Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, USA to assess whether the ...
(2016-08-08) - Journal articleGiven a simple digraph D on n vertices (with n≥2), there is a natural construction of a semigroup of transformations ⟨D⟩. For any edge (a, b) of D, let a→b be the idempotent of rank n−1 mapping a to b and fixing all vertices ...
Modeling the aggregated exposure and responses of bowhead whales Balaena mysticetus to multiple sources of anthropogenic underwater sound (2016-05-02) - Journal articlePotential responses of marine mammals to anthropogenic underwater sound are usually assessed by researchers and regulators on the basis of exposure to a single, relatively loud sound source. However, marine mammals typically ...
(2015-03-20) - Journal articlePReMiuM is a recently developed R package for Bayesian clustering using a Dirichlet process mixture model. This model is an alternative to regression models, non-parametrically linking a response vector to covariate data ...
