Interests Carlstein's main research interests are in methods of
nonparametric statistical inference, that is, methods which do not require
the user to know what particular distribution or model produced the data at
hand. Such methods are needed when the statistician lacks prior knowledge of
the underlying datagenerating process, or when the statistician wants a
robust corroborator for results from a parametric analysis of the data. He is
especially interested in nonparametric estimation of changepoints and
boundaries, and of sampling distributions (via resampling). Selected
