Bio
I recently defended my PhD dissertation in Statistics at Colorado State University. I have a bachelors degree in Math and Physics, as well as a Masters in Education from the University of Arizona. My primary research interests are in theoretical and methodological contributions to the study of stochastic processes and networks, especially for applications in ecology. I also work on developing new computational tools that provide approximate statistical inferential procedures for large data sets. Outside of academia, I try to find time to enjoy hiking, biking, climbing, and fly fishing in the beautiful the Rocky mountains, as well as sewing, printing, gardening, and cooking at home.
