Mark D. Risser

Welcome to my personal website!

I'm currently a Research Scientist at the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab and both a visiting scholar and lecturer in the Department of Statistics at UC Berkeley. I received my Ph.D. in Statistics from the Ohio State University (Columbus campus) in July, 2015. My primary research is in climate, spatial/environmental statistics, and Bayesian modeling, but I also have interests in extreme value analysis, multiple testing under spatial dependence, computational methods, and data visualization.
