Eleni presented recent work with collaborators Jim Griffin, Andrew Buxton, Dimitrios Bormpoudakis and Richard Griffiths on modelling eDNA data at the 2-day conference, which took place at the Natural History Museum in London.
SE@K research students Marina and Ulrike, and SE@K’s Byron, Diana, Eleni, Emily, Oscar, Rachel and Takis attended and presented their work at the ICMS meeting on Addressing statistical challenges of modern technological advances
Byron, Diana, Eleni, Emily, Ming and Takis attended the International Statistical Ecology Conference in Seattle, 28th June to 1st July.
On 28th June Eleni talked about Open models for removal data, in a contributed session on Abundance Estimation. Talk Slides
In the same session Emily talked about Extensions of recent models for butterfly abundance.
On 29th June Byron gave a Plenary talk with the title Citizen Science, Trick or Treat.
Also on 29th June Takis gave a talk on Efficient, flexible estimation of time to decay signs in indirect survey methods, in the second contributed session on Abundance Estimation.
In the same session Ming gave a talk on New removal approaches for reptile and amphibians.
Then Eleni gave her second talk on Count data collected using a robust design, in the third session on Abundance Estimation. Talk Slides
Later the same day Diana gave a talk on Extensions to the Hybrid Symbolic-Numeric Method for investigating identifiability in a contributed session on Capture-Recapture. Talk Slides
Emily and Byron attended the international symposium “Future 4 Butterflies in Europe” in Wageningen, Netherlands. Emily gave a talk at a workshop on butterfly monitoring in Europe entitled “Recent developments for modelling butterfly monitoring data: GAM and GAI” and gave a talk at the conference entitled “Dynamic models for butterfly monitoring data”. Byron gave a talk entitled “Modelling migrant butterfly species data”.
SE@K student Ming Zhou was awarded £500 for attending IBC 2016 in Victoria BC, Canada.
Ming’s application was judged by the Biometric Society and the Fisher Memorial Trust.
As a recipient of a bursary Ming will provide a one page report after the conference summarising how she has benefited scientifically from attendance, to be published on the Regional website.
