Neyman Visiting Assistant Professor Adrián González-Casanova
The Department of Statistics is thrilled to welcome Adrián González-Casanova as Neyman Visiting Assistant Professor.
González-Casanova is a Probabilist and a Bio mathematician. His mathematical research focus is Stochastic Duality, which is a technique to obtain information about one stochastic process using another one. For example, the genealogical structure of a population can be used, using duality, to study its genetic configuration. Some of the topics of his biological-inspired work are the effect of Latency in population genetics and the modeling of experimental evolution. This has real-world applications, such as constructing models to study pathogens capable of sustaining a seed bank and studying plasmids that cause antibiotic resistance.
"I am thrilled to be joining Berkeley Statistics and look forward to working with such a passionate and respected group of scholars."
