I am an assistant professor in the department of Mathematics and Statistics at Northern Arizona Univeristy.
My research is focused on ecological applications of statistics. I have worked on a wide variety of problems including threshold detection using free-knot splines, effects of elevated CO2 on desert ecosystems using hierarchical Bayesian modeling, the spatial distribution of ocean viruses, and occupancy models using spatially coupled detectors.
