Education and Professional Experience

  • Ph.D. in  Mathematical Statistics, Arizona State University
  • M.S. in  Applied Statistics, University of Pittsburgh
  • B.S. in Mathematics, University of Zagreb, Croatia

I joined the LLNL’s Applied Statistics group in 2009 after spending several years as a faculty member teaching mathematics and statistics. During that enjoyable period, more than a thousand students attended my classes.These days I collaborate with engineers and scientists to analyze data and develop statistical methodology for problems in diverse areas such as Stockpile certification and uncertainty quantification, Nuclear forensics, Climate modeling. I still enjoy working with students and every year look forward to summer months when I host a number of summer interns.

Research Interests

Statistics, probability, computer science, visualization and exploratory data analysis
