William Kleiber
Associate Professor
Applied Mathematics

My research interests lie broadly in spatial statistics for geophysical problems, uncertainty quantification and renewable energy. I received my Ph.D. in Statistics from the University of Washington in 2010. I spent the next two years as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Institute for Mathematics Applied to Geosciences (IMAGe) at the National Center for Atmospheric Research. In 2016 I was a visiting professor (the Lebesgue chair) at the University of Rennes 1, France. I received the American Statistical Association's Section on Statistics and the Environment's 2016 Young Investigator Award. I have been on the Board of Directors of both The International Environmetrics Society and American Statistical Association's Section on Statistics and the Environment, and have also been on the editorial board of numerous publications.


Research Areas:

  • Spatial statistics and geostatistics (especially large datasets and multivariate processes)
  • Statistical climatology
  • Stochastic weather generators
  • Uncertainty quantification for geophysical models
  • Statistics for energy science
