Ivan Ramler

Dr. Ivan Ramler joined the faculty at St. Lawrence in the winter of 2009 after finishing his PhD in Statistics from Iowa State University. His dissertation work, under the guidance of Dr. Ranjan Maitra, involved improving cluster analysis methods for noisy data and for data constrained to lie on the surface of a multi-dimensional sphere.

Since joining St. Lawrence, he has been active in collaborative research with colleagues at places such as St. Lawrence University, Clarkson University, the Los Alamos National Laboratory, and the Natural Capital Project Group (a partner of Stanford University). His current interests (and projects) involve applications to the environment and ecology, as well as in esports analytics (i.e., statistical analyses of competitive video games) - where he regularly collaborates with Dr. Choong-Soo Lee (Computer Science) and has mentored numerous summer research projects. Dr. Ramler regularly teaches many of St. Lawrence's Statistics courses (e.g., Stat 113, Stat 234, and Stat 213) and regularly mentors students through the LAS Scholars Program, CSTEP & McNair Programs, and the SLU Fellowship program.

Outside of academics, Dr. Ramler enjoys spending time not discussing statistics with his wife (SLU's Dr. Jessica Chapman), playing volleyball, and playing video games (which he claims is to better understand his esports research!).
