My research is in experimental design which is the science of determining the most efficient use of resources for obtaining information to answer a set of experimental questions. I am particularly interested in screening experiments which involve many factors but require small budgets, a situation which often occurs in the manufacturing industries and engineering. My research also includes discrete choice experiments, construction of designs for experiments involving trends or hard-to-change factors, and for computer experiments.
