Stephen Marsland

I'm a professor of mathematics and data science in the School of Mathematics and Statistics at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand.

My research interests are pretty eclectic. I'm interested in geometry and its applications, particularly shape analysis and information geometry. A lot of my time these days is spent working in bioacoustics, trying to recognise New Zealand birds from their calls, and use that to infer their abundance. It's a way that a mathematician gets to be a conservation ecologist! Take a look at our AviaNZ research group for more information.
To see my research and publications, and my book on machine learning, use the menu on the left. But here is a picture of a mathematician at work :)
