Ian Renner's visit

Ian Renner from the University of Newcastle in Australia spent some time with us while on a sabbatical. We worked together on developing a method to combine sources of information on species distribution. Ian brought his sound expertise on the Lasso for covariate selection and point processes that provide a nice integrated framework. It was fun to program in R in parallel. I wish I could do that more often. We even managed (credit goes to Ian) to present something at the International Statistical Ecology Conference.

On a personal side, Ian has become a friend, his kindness and interest in other people are amazing.
