Richard Mann

Job Title: UAF in Data Analytics

I am a University Academic Fellow in Data Analytics, based at the Department of Statistics in the School of Mathematics. My research focuses on the interface between​ theory and data in human and animal behaviour. My interest areas include decision-making, motion and collective self-organisation. Using Bayesian methods, machine-learning and agent-based models I aim to uncover how and why animals and humans behave the way they do, using cutting edge data from animal tracking, smartphone sensors and internet sources.
