My research is in computer experiments, specifically the development of efficient sequential designs for computer experiments. I am particularly interested in improving upon existing sequential design techniques used on non-stationary surfaces, or data with non-stationary qualities. My research focuses on achieving an accurate global fit of such surfaces.
Additionally, I have an interest in statistics education research and curricular design. I believe in including high-impact practices at all levels of the curriculum and I am dedicated to continuously exploring new ways to improve my students' experience and learning.
