We possess strong expertise in spatial, temporal and space-time statistical modelling including Bayesian hierarchical modelling and MCMC techniques. We draw on other expertise within Exeter Climate Systems, e.g. in climate science, weather prediction, extreme value theory etc., and also on wider expertise in dynamical systems, data mining, hydrology, environmental engineering etc.

The environment and health theme in XCS is particularly interested in involvement in joint research projects / PhD supervision with environmental / public health / epidemiological / biological groups working in climate / weather related human and animal health impacts and associated adaptation.
