Sally is an ARC Future Fellow (2014-18), a professor of statistics and the Chair of the International Society of Bayesian Analysis’ Section on Bayesian Education Research and Practice (BERaP).
An internationally recognised scholar in Bayesian statistics, Sally’s research focus is on developing novel methods to flexibly model and analyse complex data. This includes:
using mixture models for complex phenomenon
modelling longitudinal data
the spectral analysis of time series
constructing transitions kernels in MCMC schemes which efficiently explore posterior distributions of interest.
Since forming the Centre for Translational Data Science at the University of Sydney, Sally has shifted her research focus to developing probabilistic models that have real-world applications. Working with researchers across science and engineering, their aim is to develop statistical methods that can provide solutions to a wide range of global problems.
These research leaders will unite teams of researchers and other experts in common research goals. They encourage world class data science research and unique collaborations, driving innovative impactful outcomes.
Each will lead one of four themes:
