Ignatius McBride

Ignatius has a bachelors degree in Mathematics & Finance and currently works as a casual academic at the University of Technology Sydney while completing his honours in Applied Statistics. His research is concerned with the application of statistical methods to model intertidal macroalgae temperatures. These macroalge live at the interface of marine and terrestrial habitats and are increasingly being used as an early warning system for climate change impacts.

Growing up on the Central Coast of New South Wales, Ignatius is a keen cricketer and rugby league tragic. Having served his time as an overseas import for the Yelverton Bohemians in the Devon cricket league and guiding them to an uninspired mid table finish, Ignatius now spends his weekends wielding the willow for the Wyong Roos or cheering on the mighty Parramatta Eels.

Post honours Ignatius hopes to combine his passion for statistics and love of all things sport.
