Lars Rönnegård
I am professor in Statistics at Dalarna University and Guest Professor at the Department of Animal Breeding and Genetics here at SLU.


My overall aim in my work is to find simple statistical solutions to complex problems in biology. My research covers traditional livestock species, as well as plants and wildlife. Most of my work is interdisciplinary and I enjoy working together with a number of research groups.


I am involved in research at SLU on peas, silver foxes, reindeer and flycatchers. Apart from a number of publications in statistical genetics, I have also developed a widely used statistical package in R, hglm, which is important to me in spreading my research results.
