B.S. in Mathematics, Angelo State University, 2002. Teaching Interests: Teaching mathematics and statistics courses and directing student research at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Research Interests: Theoretical statistics, including the study of multivariate normal models given by group symmetries or graphs. Applied statistics, including applications of linear regression models and logistic regression models. I am also interested in education research, financial mathematics, mathematical biology, and game theory. | |
Keith Emmert Associate Professor Email: emmert@tarleton.edu Office: 330 Math Phone: 254-968-9302 Ph. D., Applied Mathematics, Texas Tech University, 2004 M.S., Mathematics, Louisiana State University, 1999 B.S., Applied Mathematics, Southeastern Louisiana University, 1996 Educational Interests: I am interested in teaching both theoretical as well as applied class ranging from Calculus through graduate level. Involving students in undergraduate as well as graduate research, and thesis direction is another aspect of education that is important to me. Research: To date, my research has focused on the development of new deterministic and stochastic epidemic models for the spread of disease in a structured host population. Past models have been included difference as well as differential equations with either fixed or periodic coefficients. Current epidemic models include amphibian movement between ponds and competition/predation amongst different species. I use theory as well as simulations to investigate the richness of the models. Ongoing interdepartmental collaborative work includes studying dairy mastitis and forecast modeling of downy mildew on onions. Future directions in research include investigating the robustness of stability results, animal movement models, patch models studying the spread and control of influenza, and population genetics. Parallel algorithms and genetic algorithms will most likely be of great use in exploring these new topics. Website: http://faculty.tarleton.edu/emmert | |
