About Me

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Statistics at Brigham Young University. I did my graduate work at Duke University (2007-2011) following which I held a two year post-graduate research position at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (2011-2013). My area of expertise is the analysis of spatially and temporally correlated data with an emphasis on applications in environmental impacts on public health. See my research page for more information.

"You know, sometimes all you need is 20 seconds of insane courage, just literally 20 seconds of embarrassing bravery, and I promise you something great will come of it."
