I am currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematics at Lafayette College.  After completing my BS in Mathematics at Bucknell University in 2003, I received my Ph.D. in Statistics from Penn State University in 2008 under the supervision of Michael Akritas, and stayed on there for three years as a fixed-term assistant professor working primarily in the Statistical Consulting Center.  I then moved on to a visiting assistant professorship in the Department of Statistics at Carnegie Mellon University.

In addition to teaching consulting at Penn State, I also taught a capstone consulting course for the Master in Statistical Practice program at CMU.  Over the course of these six years of teaching and doing consulting, I have seen a vast array of interesting problems in a whole host of disciplines.  I remain very interested and active in consulting, and find these interactions with other scientists and researchers to be one of the most rewarding aspects of being a statistician.
