Yeonjoo Park is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Management Science and Statistics  at The University of Texas at San Antonio. Prior to UTSA, she was a visiting assistant professor in the Department of Statistics  at The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Her primary research interests center on modeling and analysis of functional data. She is especially interested in developing statistical methodologies and theoretic understanding for irregular functional data where functional samples are collected over varying grids or domains. She is also working on extension of functional data analysis tools to spatial data analysis. Besides methodological studies, she has an interest in interdisciplinary research.
