I am an assistant professor in the Department of Statistics at The Ohio State University. My research interests include uncertainty quantification and statistical inverse problems.

This paper is joint work with: Erin K. Cameron, David A. Campbell, Erin Bayne. A story about our results appeared in OSU Research News, written by Pam Frost Gorder and entitled: "Invasion of the earthworms, mapped and analyzed"; also a radio segment was produced for the Academic Minute, available on Inside Higher ED.
My PhD thesis, "Probabilistic solution of differential equations for Bayesian uncertainty quantification and inference" , is available here.
I am interested in nonparameteric regression and functional data analysis. Two recent publications in this area are:
Much of my work involves estimating functionals of complex multivariate distributions, which requires extensive use of Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) methods. For this reason I am interested in recent advances in MCMC sampling and stochastic computation. Related to the problem of inference for computer experiments, I have been studying polynomial chaos representations of stochastic processes, both for emulation (non-intrusive methods) and for estimating solutions of systems of stochastic differential equations.
