Yawen Guan is in the SAMSI CLIM Program. She received her Ph.D. in statistics from Pennsylvania State University. During her graduate studies, she was fortunate to work with top scientists in the study of the Antarctic Ice Sheet. She was intrigued by the ice sheet physics and developed a statistical method to combine physics and multiple data sets to study ice streams on West Antarctica. Her research interests are spatial statistics, Bayesian modeling and computational methods for large data.
