Will Kleiber
About Me
I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Applied
Mathematics at the University of Colorado at Boulder.
Between 2010 and 2012, I was a Post-Graduate Scientist with the
Institute for Mathematics
Applied to Geosciences at the
National Center for Atmospheric Research .
I received my Ph.D. in Statistics from the
University of Washington .
My current research interests include multivariate process modeling,
calibration and emulation of large geophysical computer models and stochastic
modeling of physical systems.
