My research areas of interest include Bayesian statistics, statistical computing, population modeling, and mathematical biology. Current projects include the statistical analysis of tumor incidence in Lake Erie and ranking college hockey teams. I am also a primary instructor for the Minor in Statistics offered at Penn State Behrend. If you are interested in studying to be an actuary at Penn State Behrend, click here.HomepageHo
I received a Ph.D. in Fisheries from Michigan State University in the summer of 2004. My dissertation dealt with the creation of lake trout population model that included sea lamprey predation via a functional response model. I also have a M.S. in Statistics from Michigan State, a M.S. in Applied Mathematics from the University of Tulsa, and a B.S. in Applied Mathematics from the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford.
