Principal Research Fellow

Jim combines advising colleagues on the statistical design, analysis and interpretation of their experiments with doing original research and thus has collaborative experience of quantitative and computational methods in many areas of the Biological and Environmental Sciences.

As an ecologist he is interested in how the Environment and Agriculture interact. Research areas in which he acts as Co- or Principal-investigator include

Measuring monitoring and modelling Methane release from dairy cows

Evaluating weather dependent computer models of crops

Field experiments into the climate change effects of elevated CO2 and Ozone on wheat and potatoes.

Expertise Summary

Design, statistical analysis and interpretation of experiments in the biological and environmental sciences.Computer modelling of plant environment interactions .Quantitative ecology. Methane from ruminant livestock

Teaching Summary

Contributing to courses related to statistics, computing, environmental modelling and ecology

Research Summary

Measuring and Monitoring Methane from Dairy Cows.

Collaborative work on analysing data from projects throughout BioSciences and the Vet School

Recent Publications

Board member as statistical advisor to the Journal of Animal Feed Science and Technology

Past Research
