Howdy! I am Assistant Professor in the Department of Statistics, Texas A&M University. Before I jointed Texas A&M, I was a post-doc fellow at UT Austin working with Peter Müller. I got my PhD degree in Statistics from Rice University, supervised by Francesco Stingo and Veerabhadran Baladandayuthapani.
