Biographical Information

I am an associate professor in the statistics department at Colorado State University. I have research interests in extreme value theory and spatial statistics. I regularly collaborate with the Geophysical Statistics Project at NCAR.

My wife, Tina, and I live in Ft. Collins with our sons Ethan and Abe, and our dog Molly. We like to bicycle, hike, swim, telemark ski, and generally be outdoors.


Interests: Extreme value theory, modeling multivariate extremes, heavy tailed phenomena, spatial statistics, Bayesian modeling, meteorological/environmental and ecological applications.
