I am a research scientist with the Robust Software Engineering Group in the Intelligent Systems Division (Code TI), at NASA Ames Research Center, employed by the University of California Santa Cruz. I obtained my PhD in Applied Mathematics and Statistics from UC Santa Cruz, and M.S. in Statistics from Stanford University. My research interests include applied Bayesian statistics with emphasis on computer experiment, statistical learning, using statistical models and tools in combination with traditional formal methods for the analysis and verification and validation (V&V) of complex safety critical and online software systems.
