Megan Heyman

Hi, I'm Megan!

I joined the Rose-Hulman Mathematics Department in 2016 after completing my PhD in Statistics at the University of Minnesota. Areas of interest in my research include bootstrapping techniques, wavelets, and statistical modeling. I tend to be attracted to analyzing data with spatio-temporal structures.

The original crop yield data are available from The climate variables used to predict crop yield in the Machine Learning and Data Mining approaches to Climate Science chapter are originally from The compiled Excel versions I used within Esri ArcMAP and within the chapter are also provided below. Any user of these datasets should cite the original source.
