About Me

I have been a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Statistical and Applied Mathematical Sciences Institute (SAMSI) and Duke University under the guidance of Dr. James O. Berger at Duke University since 2018, where I was also participating in the 2018-2019 research program on Model Uncertainty: Mathematical and Statistical (MUMS). Before that, I got my Ph.D. in Statistics in 2018 at University of Cincinnati under the guidance of Dr. Emily L. Kang and Dr. Bledar A. Konomi with dissertation topic in spatial and spatio-temporal statistics. I will join the School of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences at Clemson University as an Assistant Professor in Fall 2021.

My statistical research is stimulated by real-world challenges and aims at addressing real-world problems in physical sciences including remote sensing science and climate science, engineering science, and medical science. My main statistical research is focused on the deveopment of flexible statistical methods to understand physical and environmental processes. It spans the following areas of statistics and machine learning:
