Dr David Wilkinson

Quantitative Ecologist
University of Melbourne

David is a quantitative ecologist who does no field work, which means he likes pretending that the ones and zeroes on his screen are real furry creatures. Sometimes even plants. He has a background in occupancy and species distribution modelling, with a current research focus on the development of joint species distribution models. He is currently involved in various projects about bushfires, roadkill risk, frogs, kelp, some different frogs, offsets, arid Australia, optimal monitoring design, process-explicit distribution models, reproducible science, and anything else he can put his ecology, stats, and/or programming backgrounds towards.
