**Detecting Drug Effects in the
Brain**. *useR! 2011, Coventry, UK, August, 2011*.
This talks introduces the gslcca package, under development
at R
Forge.

**BradleyTerry2: Flexible Models for Paired
Comparisons**. *useR! 2010, Maryland, US, July,
2010*. This talks introduces the BradleyTerry2 package,
see also the BradleyTerry2
webpage.

**Custom Functions for Specifying Nonlinear Terms to
gnm**. *useR! 2008, Dortmund, Germany, August
2008*. This describe how useRs can extend the
capability of the gnm function, using novel discrete-time
hazard models as an illustration.

**Nonlinear Discrete-time Hazard Models for the Rate of
First Marriage**. *Invited seminar, National
University of Ireland, Maynooth, March, 2010*. This
describes an application of generalized nonlinear models.

**gnm: a Package for Generalized Nonlinear Models**.
*useR! 2006, Vienna, Austria, June 2006*. This gives
an introduction to the gnm package. The package has a dedicated webpage
and may be downloaded from CRAN.

**Multiplicative Interaction Models in R**. *Joint
Statistical Meetings (JSM), Minneapolis, MN, USA, August
2005*. This describes the use of the gnm package to fit
multiplicative interaction models. This talk was awarded
the **2006 Best Contributed Presentation Award of the
ASA Statistical Computing Section**.

**Clustering Microarray Data**. *Eigth North American
Meeting of New Researchers in Statistics and Probablity
(NRC), Minneapolis, USA, August 2005*. This was based
