Professor Martyn Plummer

I joined the Department of Statistics in September 2018. I am an applied statistician with interests in medical research and public health. My other main area of interest is statistical computing. I am a member of the R Core Team and I am currently serving as co-president of the R Foundation for Statistical Computing (with Simon Urbanek). I am the lead author and maintainer of JAGS (Just Another Gibbs Sampler), a program for Bayesian modelling using Markov Chain Monte Carlo.

Before joining Warwick, I worked for many years at the International Agency for Research on Cancer in Lyon, France (1995-2018) where most of my work was focused on infections and cancer. Previously I worked at the MRC Biostatistics Unit, Cambridge (1990-1995)
