Sally’s research interests lie mainly in Bayesian methodology. In particular the spectral analysis of time series, flexible models for panel and longitudinal data, Gaussian and non-Gaussian nonparametric regression, and the development of efficient algorithms for large datasets. Sally holds an ARC Future Fellowship (2014-2018) and is an associate investigator in the ARC’s centre of excellence Big Data, Big Models Big Insights.
Her applied work includes modelling cognitive development and voltage fluctuations obtained from an intracranial electroencephalogram (IEEG). She also works with researchers in the Centre of Ethical Leadership at Ormond College to study the development of leadership in China.
Sally’s research papers have been published in Journal of the American Statistical Association, Journal of the Royal Statistical Society Series b, Biometrika, Journal of Computational and Graphical Statistics. She has been an invited and a regular speaker at international conferences such as the Institute of Mathematical Statistical (ISM) World Congress, MCMSki and the International Society for Bayesian Analysis (ISBA). She is on the editorial board for the journal Big Data Research.
