Curriculum Vitae - September 01, 2012
My main applied research interest is in
the application of statistics to problems in astronomy and cosmology. This
includes projects related to
matching kernel estimation, and
detection (preprint forthcoming). Partially motivated by some problems in astronomy, I have
also done work developing methods and
theory (preprint forthcoming)
for statistical inverse problems.
Additionally, I have worked on the
excess risk implications
for choosing the lasso tuning parameter with cross-validation
of large matrix approximations.
I've even done a little
I have a bachelors degree from the University of Colorado in
economics and math, and a masters and Ph.D. from Carnegie Mellon
University in statistics, under the direction
of Chris Genovese. Outside of academia, I enjoy
hiking, running, weight training, playing and watching sports, and,
perhaps most of all, coffee.
If you would like to work with me, please send me an email with a brief description of your research interests.
We'll set up a meeting to chat.
