Dr. Berrett researches Bayesian modeling, spatial and space-time statistics, and applications to environmental data. She has done work in digital nuclear product detection, environmental health effects on infant bronchiolitis, and pollution maps.
Gilbert W. Fellingham
Dr. Fellingham's research combines statistics, health, and sports performance. One of his projects analyzed the importance of attack speed in volleyball, concluding that the speed of the set is only relevant when the attacker is far from the setter. Dr. Fellingham is the graduate coordinator and an associate chair of BYUs Department of Statistics.
Dr. Heaton specializes in the analysis of spatially and temporally correlated data, focusing on the impacts of a changing climate on public health. By using large datasets, exploiting space-time correlations, and establishing causal relationships, Dr. Heaton studies environmental impacts on ecosystems, agriculture, and the economy.
Dr. Reese specializes in biostatistics and sports medicine, but he has also used statistical methods to tackle a broad range of topics. In addition to his work in sports, Dr. Reese has published work on astrophysics, pharmaceuticals, and technology. Dr. Reese is the Melvin W. Carter Professor of Statistics and is currently serving as the dean of the College of Physical and Mathematical Sciences.
