I am a statistician whose work focuses on applied problems in engineering and the environment using multivariate, time series, and spatial statistical methods.  My current interests are in modeling big, multivariate, spatial datasets; developing methods for categorical spatial data; and detecting outliers and faults for process and data control.  I am an Associate Editor for Technometrics, Environmetrics, Stat, and the Journal of Environmental Statistics.  I am an officer in the section for Statistics and the Environment of the American Statistical Association.  After earning my Ph.D. in Statistics at Texas A&M University, I spent the next seven years as an Assistant Professor at Colorado School of Mines in Golden, Colorado.
