Associate Professor Glenn Stone


Dr Glenn Stone is an Associate Professor in the School of Computing and Mathematics. He holds a BA in Mathematics (Oxford), an MSc in Computer Science (Manchester) and a PhD in Statistics (Bath). After a period of teaching Statistics at the University of Bath, he moved to Australia and joined the CSIRO in 1993. There he worked on the development and application of statistical methods for a wide range of areas, including spatial smoothing, data mining, insurance risk and biostatistics. From 1999 to 2003 he was a Principal Research Analyst at Insurance Australia Group, returning to CSIRO in 2003 to work in bioinformatics and biostatistics, and more recently remote sensing. He joined UWS in 2011.
