Teaching 20152013

Bio I have a bachelors degree in Math and Physics, as well as a Masters in Education from the University of Arizona. I am currently pursuing a PhD in Statistics at Colorado State University. Outside of academia, I have a variety of interests, some of which are to be expected for a resident of Fort Collins (hiking, climbing, fly fishing, biking), and some of which are less common (sewing, printing, gardening, cooking).

Animal Movement
