Background and Research Interests
I first came to Simon Fraser in 1995 as a PhD student, after earning a BSc in Applied Math from Concordia University (Montreal, Canada) and a MSc in Statistics from Carleton University, (Ottawa, Canada). For my doctoral thesis, I worked with Randy Sitter on the design and analysis of fractional factorial split-plot experiments. After graduating in 1999, I moved to the Department of Statistics at the University of Michigan as an assistant professor. In 2003, I joined the Department of Statistics and Actuarial Science at Simon Fraser as the Canada Research Chair in Industrial Statistics.
The focus of my research has been the design and analysis of industrial experiments. New theoretical and algorithmic methodology has been developed for applications with randomization restrictions, robust parameter design and computer experiments. This also includes contributions to Bayesian design and variable selection in industrial applications. Recent work has included experiment design and model selection for investigation of large-scale computer simulators as well as theoretical results for finding multi-stage experiment designs. I am currently working with collaborators at the Center for Radiative Shock Hydrodynamics (CRASH), Los Alamos National Lab, the National Center for Atmospheric Research.
