About

Carla Ewels is a Lecturer in statistics/data sciences at James Cook University. She received her doctoral in statistics from the Queensland University of Technology supervised by the Distinguished Professor Kerrie Mengersen. Carla has strong interests in statistical modelling and methods, particularly in the Bayeisan framework. These include, but are not limited to, modelling of complex systems, Bayesian temporal and spatial models, model comparisons, classification, clustering, analysis of big data and Markov Chain Monte Carlo methods. She is especially interested in applying statistics to real problems. To date, she has worked in the field of marine and medical research, genetics, agriculture and fisheries.
