This is an introduction to simple, rejection ABC and sequential ABC methods.
I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate of statistical ecology in the department of Animal and Plant Sciences at the University of Sheffield, working with Dr Dylan Childs and Prof Paul Blackwell and funded by the Leverhulme Trust.
Currently, I am working on applying ABC methodologies to a dynamic energy budget model for the Soay sheep population. My PhD involved developing continuous-time statistical models for carrying out inference on animal movement data obtained by GPS telemetry.
