Dr Glenys Bishop has a broad background in Applied Statistics in the areas of survey design and analysis and experimental design and analysis. She has collaborated with agricultural scientists, medical researchers and social scientists.
She worked for nine years as a statistical methodologist at the Australian Bureau of Statistics in the areas of survey design and analysis, data confidentiality and data linkage.
Prior to that Glenys was a Statistics lecturer at the University of Adelaide and at Bond University where she taught a variety of theoretical and applied Statistics subjects to both Mathematical Statistics majors and students from other degree programs. Glenys has had a keen interest in technology assisted learning techniques since the early 1970s and with the assistance of several teaching development grants has developed such learning aids as interactive programs that use dynamic illustrations of statistical concepts, a video on experimental design, and case studies for teaching agricultural and engineering students.
Glenys also collaborated with Biomathematics and Statistics Scotland in the development of SMART, an explorapedia for statistical techniques.
Glenys has served as President of the Canberra Branch of the Statistical Society of Australia.
