Courses I teach regularly:
Math 113 - Applied Statistics
Math 213 - Applied Regression Analysis
Math 325 - Probability and Math 326 - Mathematical Statistics.
My research interests:
Multivariate Statistics - in particular Cluster Analysis, a method of determining naturally occurring groups located in the data.
|Directional Statistics - this deals with statistics based on data that is constrained to lie on the circumference of a sphere. Examples, would be time of day, wind direction, etc.
Sample student projects I have supervised:
-Evaluating the Robustness of Competing Clustering Algorithms
-Investigating the convergence rate of sampling distributions from skewed populations
-Analyzing Fantasy Football Mock Drafts
Examples of presentations, exhibitions, performances and published work:
