Tracy Holsclaw

Tracy received her PhD in Applied Math and Statistics in 2011, under the direction of advisors Herbie Lee (UCSC) and Bruno Sanso (UCSC).  Her dissertation was on  Statistical Modeling for Dark Energy. Her  research was an ISSDM collaboration with Los Alamos National Labs cosmologists Katrin Heitmann, Salman Habib and Ujjaini Alam and statistician Dave Higdon. The collaborative research team worked with Bayesian parametric and non-parametric models to fit non-linear equations to supernova, baryon acoustic oscilliation, and cosmic microwave backgound radiation data to elicit the form of dark energy.

Tracy is currently a post-doctoral researcher at UC Irvine and working on the following projects in Statistics and Machine
-modeling rainfall in India
-model selection for genetic microarray data for breast cancer
