  Ana-Maria Staicu is Associate Professor in the Department of Statistics, North Carolina State University. She completed a PhD in 2007 from University of Toronto CA, under the supervision of Nancy Reid. Before joining NC State in 2009, she was a Brunel research fellow at the University of Bristol UK and also worked with Ciprian Crainiceanu and Ray Carroll. Her research interests are primarily in functional data analysis, longitudinal data analysis, nonparametric statistics, and brain imaging analysis. It has been applied to brain tractography studies of MS and brain imaging studies more general, wearable computing, animal studies, and environmental studies. She is a recipient of the NSF Career Award.
