Statisticians have many career paths available to them. As a young researcher, I worked on theoretical problems in applied probability and time series analysis. More recently, I have focused my energies more on statistics education as well as collaborations with researchers in other fields, primarily the biomedical sciences. I enjoy teaching statistics courses at all levels, from introductory undergraduate to advanced graduate. I particularly enjoy advising student projects, which I think are the essence of a WPI education.
