We are happy to welcome Dr. Elisa Perrone to the faculty of Mathematical Sciences. Her research spans from mathematical statistics to applied statistics. She is mainly interested in multivariate statistics and dependence modeling, with particular emphasis on copulas and their geometric properties. This work includes the development of copula-based approaches used in optimal experimental design and environmental sciences such as hydrology and weather forecasting.
Prior to joining UMass Lowell, Dr. Perrone was a postdoc at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the principal investigator of the project ‘Geometry of discrete copulas for weather forecasting’, funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF). Elisa has a doctoral degree from the Johannes Kepler University Linz (Austria).
We are happy to welcome Dr. Amanda Redlich to the faculty of Mathematical Sciences. Her research is in probabilistic combinatorics and randomized algorithms. In her combinatorial work she looks for patterns in big random structures, like social networks. In her algorithmic work she looks for efficient ways to solve big problems, like analyzing genetic code. Her most recent work has been on randomized allocation algorithms and biological random graphs.
Before coming to UML, Amanda worked at Bowdoin College and Rutgers University. She has a bachelor’s degree from University of Chicago and a PhD from MIT.
Last fall, we were happy to welcome Dr. Daniel Glasscock to the UML Department of Mathematical Sciences.
Daniel’s research lies at the intersection of combinatorics and analysis. He’s interested in applications of tools and ideas in dynamical systems (a branch of analysis with its origins in celestial mechanics) to combinatorics and combinatorial number theory. Daniel has degrees in math from Rice University (Bachelors), Central European University (Masters), and The Ohio State University (PhD). He is interested in teaching and research at all levels, and he organizes a yearly math summer study abroad program in Budapest, Hungary.
