About me: I am an Associate Professor of Statistics and Environment at University of Toronto. I maintain a part-time position at University of Southern California in Los Angeles, where I was previously located. I conduct research in spatial statistics, primarily applied to environmental data. I teach courses in introductory statistics, inference, data analysis, data science, and spatial statistics.


My research interests are in environmental statistics and epidemiology with specific focus on the application of spatial statistical methods to air pollution and climate data. Please go here for more details.


I was the director of MS programs in Biostatistics and Health Data Science in the Keck School of Medicine of USC, Department of Preventive Medicine. Information regarding our programs and ways to apply can be found here.
