Brian completed his Ph.D. in Biostatistics in 2005 under the direction of Jim Hodges of the University of Minnesota. After graduation, he joined NC State first as a post-doc with Montse Fuentes and then as a member of the statistics faculty in 2008. His research interests include spatial statistics, extreme value analysis, quantile regression, variable selection, and dimension reduction. In addition to these methodological interests, Brian applies these methods to environmental areas such as ecology, air pollution, and climate change, as well as data from the physical and materials sciences. For work in these areas he was awarded the 2013 Young Researcher Award from the ASA’s Section on Statistics and the Environment and the 2014 NCSU Faculty Scholar Award.
