Dr. Marlo Brown

Associate Professor of Mathematics

Office Location:
Dunleavy Hall, Room 343


Current Research

I am currently creating algorithms to detect changes in the arrival rates of count data. I am looking at calculating the probability of a change and quickest detection procedures that minimize cost of wrong decision. I have studied both single variable and multiple category data. I have also investigated the cases where the arrival rates before and after the change are both known and unknown. This has multiple applications to industry, education, and medicine.
