About Eco-Stats

Meet the Eco-Stats Research Group - a team of experts in statistics research and students, led by David Warton, who specialize in improving the methods for utilizing data to answer research questions in ecology.

Our focus is on evaluating existing methodologies, exploring little-known modern methods, and developing entirely new statistical methodologies, with a particular emphasis on model-based approaches. These approaches are generally easier to interpret and often have optimality properties.

Our team is based at the School of Mathematics and Statistics at UNSW, and our members are affiliated with other research centers, including the Evolution & Ecology Research Centre, the School of Computer Science and Engineering, and the Centre for Ecosystem Science.

We are proud to be supported by the Australian Research Council, with over $3M in ARC funding over the last decade.
