Welcome to my webpage! I am a Professor in the Department of Statistics (STAT) at West Virginia University (WVU). STAT is in the WVU Eberly College of Arts and Sciences. The information below is related to my main duties at WVU.

Fall 2018 Teaching:


You can trace my mathematics genealogy. My research interests include semi-supervised learning and design of experiments. My CV and Google Scholar Profile have a complete list of refereed publications. If you would like to discuss related problems, please contact me. (An email address is given at the bottom of this page; more contact information is available by clicking on my picture above.)
