Mauricio Nascimento is an Assistant Teaching Professor of Statistics at Penn State.
Nascimento received his Ph.D. in Statistics from The Pennsylvania State University in 2020, and a bachelor in Statistics from the Federal University of Parana in 2012.
Nascimento studied the spatial relationship between multivariate extremes using a combination of semi-parametric spectral density and Gaussian process. He also proposed a faster approximation for high-dimensional Gaussian cumulative distribution.
Nascimento was an invited speaker at STATMOS Workshop on Climate Extremes in 2016. He joined Penn State as a Asst. Teaching Professor in 2020.
