Andy Hector


My background includes a BSc. in Environmental Science at the University of Sheffield and a PhD from Imperial College before working at the NERC Centre for Population Biology and the University of Zurich.

I am interested in biodiversity change – how it is lost, how we can restore it, and the consequences for ecosystems services and stability. I am scientific Principal Investigator of RainDrop (a climate change experiment at Oxford Wytham) and Sabah Biodiversity Experiment (a tropical forest restoration project in Malaysian Borneo). I am author of ‘The New Statistics With R’ textbook, which introduces biologists to using the R programming language to perform statistical analyses.
