Professor; Ph.D., University of Minnesota, 1998. Applications of high breakdown robust statistics, regression Graphics, applied probability theory.

Research Interests

One area of my research considers the development of computationally practical robust multivariate location and dispersion estimators, robust multiple linear regression estimators and resistant dimension reduction estimators along with the corresponding theory. Another area of research involves extending least squares theory and creating graphical diagnostics for generalized linear models and single index models.
