Xiaotian Zheng

I am a fifth year PhD candidate in Statistical Science at University of California Santa Cruz, where I work on modeling and inference for non-Gaussian random processes in time and space. I am advised by Athanasios Kottas and Bruno Sansó. My research interests broadly lie in methods for spatially and temporally correlated data, point processes, and extreme values. I draw motivations from applications in environmental science and financial economics. I am also interested in methods for high-dimensional data and scalable algorithms for complex and dependent data.
