Kate Calder

Professor, Statistics
Faculty Affiliate
Research Interests:  Spatial and spatio-temporal statistics, Bayesian hierarchical modeling and computation, Network analysis
Current Research:  As part of the team conducting the Adolescent Health and Development in Context (AHDC) Study, I contribute to the project on issues related to the sampling design and statistical analysis ecological network data.  Several of my methodological-oriented research projects in Bayesian socio-spatial network analysis are motivated by features of the AHDC Study and are independently funded by the NSF.  I also work on the development of statistical models for discrete and nonstationary spatial processes, as well as on methods for cumulative spatio-temporal risk assessment.
