 My current research focuses on resolving "big data'' issues in uncertainty quantification and spatial modeling for environmental research and business analytics. My methodological work pertains developing new computationally efficient approaches to analyzing large data sets with complex dependence structures and distributional properties for which traditional methods are not scalable.
