Biography

Andrew Parnell is Hamilton Professor in the Hamilton Institute at Maynooth University. His research is in statistics and machine learning for large structured data sets in a variety of application areas. He has co-authored over 70 peer-reviewed papers in journals such as Science, Nature Communications, and Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, and has methodological publications in journals such as Statistics and Computing, The Annals of Applied Statistics, and Journal of the Royal Statistical Society: Series C. He has been awarded over €3 million to date in direct funding as PI or Co-PI, and has been involved in grants totalling over €40 million as collaborator. He has been heavily involved in the commercialisation of research through the start-up companies Prolego Scientific (CSO) and Atturos (Scientific Advisor). He is currently a funded investigator in the SFI Insight Centre for Data Analytics and leader of the Advanced Analytics and Engineer Feedback pillar of the SFI I-Form Advanced Manufacturing Centre. He is an expert reviewer for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. 

His main theoretical research interests include:
- Tree-based machine learning methods such as Bayesian Additive Regression Trees (BART) and Random Forests
- Extreme Value Theory
- Spatial statistics
- Bayesian hierarchical modelling using JAGS and Stan
- Compositional data
- Zero-inflation modelling
- Missing data analysis

His current list of application areas includes:
• Climatology, including sea level rise, extremes, and measuring rapid past climate changes
• Manufacturing, including anomaly detection, real-time tool wear analytics, and additive manufacturing
• Bioinformatics, including prostate cancer identification from peptide measurements, machine learning for SNPS, extending G-BLUP and SNP-BLUP models to larger data sets. 
• Learning analytics for monitoring student progress and engagement
• Quantitative ecology especially mixing models for estimating animal diets and sediment tracing
• Radiocarbon dating and chronology modelling for archaeological and palynological applications

He enjoys collaborating with other scientists and writing non-specialist software via the open-source statistical language R.
