Welcome to my homepage
I am a professor of statistics in the Department of Mathematics at Boise State University. I received my PhD in Statistics from the University of Georgia. My main research interests are time series, extreme value analysis, and applied statistics. Specifically, I am interested in (1) application of extreme value theory in climatology (e.g., extreme temperature, extreme precipitation and snowfall, so on), (2) theory and methods for time series analysis, (3) time-varying coefficient dynamic regression models, (4) methods and algorithms for large and big data, and (5) application of statistical methods in range management and land use.
