Professor Kjell Doksum

Kjell Doksum.

"Kjell Doksum has worked in a variety of areas including estimation of nonparametric regression and correlation curves, inference for global measures of association in semiparametric and nonparametric settings, the estimation of regression quantiles, statistical modeling and analysis of HIV data, the analysis of financial data, and Bayesian nonparametric inference. He is a co-author with Peter Bickel of Mathematical Statistics: Basic Ideas and Selected Topics".
