Current Research Interests
Sequential Inference
– for population size models and for the initial size of the linear pure death process.
Markrecapture and Plantcapture
– the latter being a variant of markrecapture under which a known number of “planted” individuals is inserted into the target population.
History of Statistics
– history of markrecapture, origins of the Petersen estimator.
