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 http://quickstats.nass.usda.gov/. The climate variables used to predict crop yield in the Machine Learning and Data Mining approaches to Climate Science chapter are originally from https://mygeohub.org/groups/u2u/acv. 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.
