Welcome to my blog!

After teaching high school math for four years and earning a Masters in Statistics at UMass-Amherst and a PhD in Biostatistics at Brown University, I am currently an Assistant Professor of Statistics at Skidmore College.

My research focuses on causal inference methods for multiple exposures or multiple exposure doses. In my spare time, I enjoy the application of statistics to sports, particularly with respect to league policies, structures, and incentives.
