I am a faculty member in the Departments of Statistics and Entomology. The main components of my research activities are statistical methodological research and scientific collaborative research. My statistical methodological research concerns developing statistical methodology for analyzing spatially referenced data (spatial statistics) and spatial data repeatedly sampled over time (spatio-temporal statistics) that arise often in the biological, physical, and social sciences. My recent collaborative research related to this project concerns applying modern statistical methods, especially spatial and spatio-temporal statistics, to studies in spatial demography, population research, and environmental health.
