Professor | Trevor J. McMinn Endowed Research Professor in Science


My research interests are in applied probability and statistic. I work on random self-similar trees and networks, coalescent and branching processes, random sums of heavy-tailed variables, and time series analysis. Applications include statistical seismology, river channel networks, and cell biology. Further information can be found on my webpage.
