My research  interests include statistical modelling, statistical computing, survival analysis and the application of statistics in Clinical Research and Sports Science.  A new version of my free software package for estimating blood lactate based endurance markers is available to download here. This improved version will calculate and display lactate markers directly over the web.

A list of my publications to date can be found here and a copy of my curriculum vita here.

I am a co-author of Statistics in Sport and Exercise Science which was published in 2010.  The book assumes no prior  knowledge of statistics and uses real-life case studies to introduce the importance of statistics in sport and exercise science.

Statistical  tests and techniques are described here in a friendly and easy-to-understand manner, giving you the confidence to analyses data  and complete your own statistical studies. Code is available on the book’s accompanying
website to replicate all analyses in Minitab, SPSS and R.
