Fall 2015 teaching

In Fall 2015, I will be teaching a special topics course (Stat 591) on Prior-free Probabilistic Inference which, among other things, will include a detailed introduction to my recent work on "inferential models" (IMs). An announcement with some details about the course is here. Students are welcome to contact me if they have any questions about the course.

Research interests

Asymptotics, Bayes and empirical Bayes analysis, foundations of statistics, high-dimensional inference, mixture models, and nonparametrics.

Research funding

Current research partially supported by:

  • National Science Foundation
  • U.S. Army Research Office
  • Society of Actuaries & Casualty Actuarial Society
