Dr Marina Jiménez Muñoz


Research Interests


I am a statistician interested in the modelling of ecological processes. My experience so far has consisted on developing and implementing statistical models to detect and quantify changes in biodiversity. During my PhD I worked on integrating different data types to aid problems arising from spatial, sparse and or missing data.

I am particularly interested in the development of robust statistical methods for the flexible integration of spatio-temporal data at different resolutions. My current research consists on building spatio-temporal models which incorporate and handle the uncertainties and heterogeneous attributes associated to these types of data.
