Alexandra M. Schmidt
Alexandra M. (Alex) Schmidt is a Brazilian biostatistician and epidemiologist who works as an associate professor of biostatistics at McGill University in Canada. She is known for her research on spatiotemporal and multivariate statistics and their applications in environmental statistics.
Education and career
Schmidt earned bachelor's and master's degrees in statistics at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro in 1994 and 1996 respectively. She completed her Ph.D. in statistics in 2001 at the University of Sheffield. Her dissertation, Bayesian Spatial Interpolation of Pollution Monitoring Stations, was supervised by Tony O'Hagan.
In 2017 the Section on Statistics and the Environment of the American Statistical Association gave Schmidt their Distinguished Achievement Medal "for fundamental contributions to the development of spatio-temporal process theory, most notably to the theory of multivariate processes through coregionalization as well as the modelling of spatial covariance matrices; for related applications to the environmental and ecological science, and for service to the profession."
