James Gentle

University Professor of Computational Statistics

My interests include computational statistics, simulation, robust statistics, survey sampling, and computational finance.

I have been major professor for 22 PhD students in these areas at Iowa State University and George Mason University.

My most recent statistics book is in the area of computational finance, Statistical Analysis of Financial Data with Examples in R. I have also recently written two cookbooks, Gentle Cooking, and Buen Provecho. Favorite Recipes from South of the Border -- and Beyond.

I was active in the American Statistical Association, especially the Statistical Computing Section and the Statistical Graphics Section. I have been Chair of both of those sections.

I am Co-Editor-in-Chief (with David Scott) of Wiley Interdisciplinary Reviews: Computational Statistics,
and I am Senior Editor of Communications in Statistics.
