Conservation, biodiversity, statistical modelling, machine learning

As Conservation Science Analyst my role is to get the most insight possible out of our conservation data. I carry out research into biodiversity and conservation, focusing on the limits and quality of our data. I use a combination of statistical and machine learning methods to expand our capacity for conservation research and assessments.
