Kerrie Mengersen

My focus is on using and developing new statistical and computational methods that can help to solve complex problems in the real world. These problems are in the fields of environment, genetics, health and medicine, and industry. My research areas include Bayesian statistics, hierarchical modelling and complex systems. What’s best about my job? That I can work with a diverse range of people doing outstanding things in many different areas, and contribute expertise in an important component of their work: making the best use of their data to help them make better decisions.
