Wendy Meiring, (Ph.D., University of Washington, Seattle) is an applied statistician in the Department of Statistics and Applied Probability at UCSB. After a postdoc with the Geophysical Statistics Project at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado, she joined the faculty at UCSB. Her research areas include estimation of non-stationary space-time covariances, prediction of space-time processes, and functional data analysis, primarily in the environmental sciences. At the graduate level at UCSB, she has enjoyed teaching classes in Environmental Statistics, Computational Statistics, Time Series, as well as several other Applied Statistics classes.
