Kenneth H Pollock Home
I was born in rural Australia and obtained a B.Sc. degree in Agriculture from the University of Sydney in New South Wales. For my Honours subject I chose Biometrics and began combining Statistics and Biology into a career. In order to obtain further postgraduate training, I attended Cornell University and obtained Masters and Ph. D degrees with theses on new developments in capture-recapture sampling of wildlife and fisheries populations. Thus my interest and focus on ecological applications of statistics began at that early stage of my career. I am an international expert on sampling animal populations. My passion is to work at the interface of biology and statistics to improve the science practiced by fisheries, wildlife and conservation biologists. A key aspect of that is sound postgraduate student education and mentorship. My greatest pleasure comes from seeing students grow and succeed in their academic endeavours.
