Dr. Berrett researches Bayesian modeling, spatial and space-time statistics, and applications to environmental data. She has done work in digital nuclear product detection, pollution maps, and sea-level change.
William F. Christensen
Dr. Christensen's research interests include pollution source apportionment, spatial and environmental statistics, and climate and paleoclimate. He has published research in pollution mapping, glacier core analysis, and climate models. Dr. Christiansen is the 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.
Dr. Tass studies microarrays, biostatistics, and statistical application in medicine, health, and wildlife. She has also performed studies analyzing the efficiency of foreign aid allocations.
Dennis H. Tolley
Dr. Tolley specializes in using statistical and actuarial methods in biochemistry, health, and medicine. His research in biomarker measurement can help in the early detection of diseases like preeclampsia and Alzheimers.
