An NSF sub-contract $76,800 was awarded to Sam Shen, another $10,809 to Barb Bailey in September 2016. The sub-contracts are from an NSF network grant to Statistical Methods for Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences (STATMOS), managed by the University of Washington-Seattle. Shen’s fund is to support a postdoc working on oceanic signal processing in collaboration with the Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO). Bailey’s fund is to support a PhD student to conduct collaborative research at the National Center for Atmospheric Research on snow-water equivalence.
STATMOS’ lead PI is Montserrat Fluentes, North Carolina State University, with Michael Stein of University of Chicago and Peter Guttorp of University of Washington as co-PIs. Barb Bailey and Rich Levine founded the SDSU node and Sam Shen helped set up the SIO node. The SDSU-SIO sub-network enables both SDSU and SIO students and faculty to receive STATMOS funding for collaborative research between the two institutions.
Shen leads the STATMOS interest group of nonstationary space-time process. Bailey directs the SDSU node of STATMOS. They both attended the STATMOS annual meeting at University of Chicago on July 31, 2016.
