- My paper on variable selection and sensitivity analysis with dynamic trees featured as a science highlight at Argonne.
- My recent hockey paper was written up in Capital Ideas.
Teaching & Research Highlights
I am teaching two sections of Applied Regression Analysis (BUS41100) in the Fall Quarter, 2012.
My research interests include Bayesian modeling methodology, statistical computing, Monte Carlo inference, nonparametric regression, sequential design, and optimizaton under uncertainty. My application areas of interest include spatial data, sequential computer experiments, ecology, epidemiology, finance and public policy.
- James Lawrence (2008): Sequential Monte Carlo methods for model selection in ecology.
- Tim Graves (2009): Detection of long-range dependencies in time series from nature.
I participate in a cooperative statistical consulting effort with Scry Research.
