Dr Lindesay Scott-Hayward
Research Fellow and Project Manager


Research: Use of spatially adaptive smoothing (SALSA methods) and geodesic distance (CReSS method) for modelling species distributions. Of particular interest is analysis of environmental impact assessment survey data.

PhD: Predicting the distribution of marine organisms in spatially complex regions.

Research Interests:

  • Developing methods for environmental impact assessment
    • Spatially adaptive smoothing
    • Correlated data
    • Areas of complex topography (two dimensional smoothing using geodesic distances)
  • Splines
  • Radial basis functions

Workshop Teaching:

  • Introduction to Statistical Modlling
  • Spatial modelling methods for correlated data (splines, GAMs, GEEs)
  • Using the MRSea R-package
  • Distance Sampling

Project Manager:

Reports and Software:

  • Marine renewables strategic environmental assessment: Statistical Modelling of bird and cetacean distributions in off-shore renewables development areas (2013; contract for Marine Scotland (SB9 (CR/2012/05))
    • Guidance document
    • MRSea R-package
    • MRSea User Guide and reference manual
