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.
