Grace L. Yang, Professor Emerita
E-Mail: ; Phone: (301) 405-5480; Office: MTH 4402
Education: Ph.D., 1966, Statistics, University of California - Berkeley
Research Interests: Asymptotic Theory in Statistics, Survival Analysis and Empirical Likelihoods Method. Statistical applications include constructions of stochastic models for physical sciences with special focus on partially observed measurements, such as stochastic models for ultra-cold neutron lifetimes measured by magnetic traps, models for correcting dead times in phase Doppler interferometry for spray measurements, and models of sodium channels for studying activity of nerve cells.
