Erin M. Schliep

Associate Professor

Department of Statistics

I am an Associate Professor and Director of the Sports Statistics Program in the Department of Statistics at the University of Missouri. I have research interests in Bayesian statistics as well as multivariate and spatiotemporal statistics. My work is motivated by problems in environmental science, ecology, and sports.

I am also a Research Fellow at the National Institute of Statistical Science.

Outside of work, I enjoy running, biking, hiking, and playing golf with family and friends.
