    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse overview
    Dr. Lawson's research interests lie in the area of spatial and environmental statistics, and in particular, spatio-environmental epidemiology. This area includes disease mapping, ecological analysis and the analysis of clustering of disease. He also has interests in other areas of epidemiology, directional data analysis and object recognition from imaging and geostatistical estimation of random fields with applications in geology, geosciences and medical science.
