John H. (Jack) Schuenemeyer, Ph.D is a consulting statistician, teacher, and researcher. Statistical analysis and modeling areas of application include earth and environmental sciences and energy. His recent work with the U.S. Bureau of Ocean and Energy Management and U.S. Geological Survey includes developing resource assessment models for conventional and unconventional energy resources. He has provided advice on statistical issues to numerous organizations including the U.S. Energy Information Administration, American Association for Petroleum Geology Committee on Resource Evaluation, Princeton University, and the Government of Norway. Models developed by Dr. Schuenemeyer have incorporated Monte Carlo simulation, linear and non-linear modeling, Bayesian and spatial statistics, and estimation by analogs and expert judgment. His expertise also includes the R-language and statistical and presentation graphics. He has given numerous invited talks and workshops in North America, Europe and Asia.
Over the course of his career he has worked closely with economists, engineers, climate scientists and geologists. Was a professor of statistics at the University of Delaware for 23 years. He also served as a mathematical statistician for the U.S. Geological Survey.
Dr. Schuenemeyer has received many awards and honors including being elected a Fellow of the American Statistical Association (1991) and an elected member of the International Statistical Institute (2015). He received the John Cedric Griffiths Award in 2004 for excellence in teaching mathematical geology from the International Association for Mathematical Geosciences. He was named Mathematical Geosciences Distinguished Lecturer in 2013 by this same organization. He is the author of over 130 publications.
