Biography

Chris Wild did his first degrees at Auckland followed by a PhD at the University of Waterloo in Canada before joining the then Statistics Unit of the Department of Mathematics in 1979.

He was Head of Auckland's Department of Statistics 2003-2007 and co-led the University of Auckland's first-year statistics teaching team to a national Tertiary Teaching Excellence Award in 2003.

Research | Current

Currently, his main research interests are in developing methods for modelling response-selective data (e.g. case-control studies) and missing data problems, and in statistics education with particular emphasis on visualisation, software for data analysis and conceptual dcevelpment, statistical thinking and reasoning processes.
