About the Author

Peter K. Dunn is Associate Professor in the Faculty of Science, Health, Education and Engineering at the University of the Sunshine Coast. His work focuses on mathematical statistics, in particular generalized linear models. He has developed methods for accurate numerical evaluation of the densities of the Tweedie distributions, leading to a better understanding of these distributions. An engaging teacher, Dunn is the recipient of an Australian Office of Learning and Teaching citation. He has also won several conference paper prizes, including the EJ Pitman Prize at the Australian Statistics Conference. He is a member of the Statistical Society of Australia Inc. and the Australian Mathematics Society.
