I am a Research Statistician Developer at the Econometrics and Time Series group in the Advanced Analytics and Research Division at SAS Institute. I joined SAS in May of 2014 as a Research Fellow and assumed my current role a year later, after completing my PhD at the Department of Statistics and Operations Research at UNC Chapel Hill, under the direction of Professor Vladas Pipiras.

My research interests lie in the areas of time series, spatial statistics, numerical optimization and applied probability. Currently, I focus on statistical inference of multivariate time series models that exhibit long-range dependence and on developing numerical algorithms for fast and exact synthesis of Gaussian random fields. Feel free to explore my website for past or upcoming talks and for more details about my research.
