Environmental Statistics Collaborative

Contact Us

Our center provides statistical support to students and faculty of the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science, as well as to external parties. 

The Environmental Statistics Collaborative is connected by modern video- and voice-communication technologies to UMCES’ state-wide laboratory network. Currently, two Ph.D.-level statisticians run the collaborative: Dong Liang, an expert in spatial sampling, local spatial model and Bayesian hierarchical model, and Slava Lyubchich, who has expertise in time series analysis, forecasting, applied statistics, and environmental modeling.
