And when the OzLotto hit $100 million, WIN news took an interest and came and asked me what numbers to choose. Since every choice has an equally likely chance to come up, your best bet is to choose numbers that others are less likely to choose (so if you win, you'll be less likely to have to share the prize).
Disciplines & research interests
Statistics! But particularly resampling based methods like the bootstrap and the jackknife and other nonparametric techniques. Statistics can be applied just about everywhere, so I have an interest in a large number of areas, from broadband take-up, to breast cancer, to finger ratios and what they tell us about you.
Teaching Statistics is a passion for me - Statistics is a discipline that is about the whole box of wax, about life and death, because just about everything is subject to variation. So to be able to help people learn about this incredibly important feature of life is a real privilege.
In 2013, I will be teaching STAT1003, a first year introductory statistics course, in first semester, and the third-year course STAT3011, Graphical Data Analysis, in second semester.
