I joined the Department of Statistics here at Penn State in the fall of 2014. I come to statistics by way of a biology and wildlife science background. I finished my Master's in 2012 at New Mexico State University where my research and Applied Statistics minor lead me to a PhD in this field. I hope to maintain an emphasis on ecological applications and look forward to developing collaborative endeavors during my time at Penn State. Please do not hesitate to contact me via email.
