Welcome to the updated version of my home page. Please be patient while I gradually convert the content across my web to the new design. (Note: Due to a campus-wide redesign of the BGSU web in 2013-2014, some BGSU links on my old web pages may be broken.)

My research interests in Statistics and *Energy Statistics* include:

Statistics, Applied Statistics, Statistical Computing, Multivariate Analysis,
Multivariate Inference, Goodness-of-Fit, Nonlinear Dependence, Statistical Learning,
Cluster Analysis and Classification, Computational Statistics, and *Energy Statistics*.

Distance Correlation and Brownian Covariance; Distance Components (disco) for structured data; Cluster Analysis (generalization of Ward); Energy tests for equal distributions, Goodness-of-fit for Multivariate Normality, Pareto, Stable Distributions, Multivariate Laplace, and others.

*Statistical Computing with R*, Second Edition: available late 2014 or early 2015.

*R by Example* (with Jim Albert), Springer Use R! Series (2012).

*Energy Statistics*, Chapman & Hall/CRC: available 2015 or 2016.

Attention aspiring **data scientists**:

COMAST
is a new undergraduate area of specialization being developed by the Department of
Mathematics and Statistics at Bowling Green State University. This field integrates
math, statistics, and computer science to prepare for the rapidly expanding need
for data scientists.

Funded by NSF grant DMS-1331036 "EXTREEMS-QED: Computational Mathematics and Statistics Program"

Contact Prof.
Jim Albert
or Maria Rizzo for more information.

I serve as the director and coordinator of the Actuarial Science program at BGSU, and academic advisor for actuarial majors (on leave AY 2013-2014).
