I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at University of Minnesota Duluth. I graduated from Iowa State University with PhD in statistics in 2013 and University of Minnesota Twin Cities with another PhD in physics in 2006.

My main research field is spatial statistics and its applications. I am also interested in survey sampling, data mining, and statistical computing.

I am teaching Stat 5411 (Analysis of Variance) and Stat 5511 (Regression Analysis) in Fall 2015 at University of Minnesota Duluth. In Spring 2016, I will teach Stat 4040 (Introduction to Survey Sampling) and Stat 5571 (Probability).
