Portrait of Dr. Haimeng ZhangDr. Haimeng Zhang (Mathematics and Statistics) received funding from the National Science Foundation for the project “Collaborative research: Axially symmetric processes and intrinsic random functions on the sphere”. The abstract says: “The analysis of global-scale processes and phenomena continues to provide profound information on the state of our changing planetary environment. In spatial statistics, a wide variety of methods and models have been developed in Euclidean space. In this project, we will study random processes on the sphere beyond the usual homogeneity assumption using two approaches. The completion of this research will help understand the covariance structure on the sphere and provide new and powerful tools for analyzing global-scale data.”
