Dr Ross Towe

Senior Research Associate

Research Overview

I am a statistician with interests in a number of data science techniques, my research to date has focused on developing statistical methods in both an academic and industrial setting. My primary focus has been on developing extreme value methods with previous applications in hydrology and oceanography.
