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).
