Dr Oluwole Oyebamiji

Senior Research Associate


I am a Senior Research Associate in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Lancaster University. I work on the project “Data Science of the Natural Environment” (DSNE). The project comprises data scientists, environmental scientists and a range of stakeholders, and will focus on methodological innovation in data science to tackle grand challenges around environmental change http://www.lancaster.ac.uk/dsne/.Prior to coming to the Lancaster University, I worked as a Research Associate in the School of Mathematics, Statistics and Physics at Newcastle University on an interdisciplinary project entitled “Newcastle University Frontiers in Engineering Biology” (NUFEB). The aim is to develop credible and calibrated simulation of open engineered biological systems that could transform our ability to innovate and maximize our ability to explore the range of solutions at frontier level thereby reducing the risk of failure at full scale.I received my PhD in Statistical modelling from The Open University in 2014. The title of my thesis is “Statistical emulation for environmental sustainability analysis”. I studied the interactions between climate change, environment and ecosystems using advanced statistical techniques to analyse diverse datasets. I also completed a Master of Philosophy in Statistics at the University of Strathclyde in 2010 where I developed spatiotemporal models for environmental pollution.
