About Me:

I am an Assistant Professor in the Statistics and Applied Probability Department at UC Santa Barbara, with research interests centered in functional data analysis and nonparametric statistics. A significant focus of my recent work is on the analysis of samples of functional data that are density functions by incorporating geometric principles, in particular the Wasserstein metric of optimal transport. The primary field of application of these methods is in the analysis of fMRI scans and associated clinical data.
