I am currently a PhD Candidate in Biostatistics at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. See About for more on my background.

The posts below mostly have to do with statistics, with a few other random subjects thrown in for good measure. See the Research page for my CV and a listing of my research outputs, and Software for links to my R packages.

You can find me on Github, Twitter, and via email.
