I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Statistics at Penn State, with a courtesy appointment in Mathematics.
During Fall 2011, I spent time at the University of Chicago as a Visiting Scholar. From Fall 2008 until spring 2011, I was a Research Assistant Professor (post-doc) at UIC. During part of Spring 2011, I was a Visiting Scholar in the program on Algebraic Geometry with a view towards applications at the Mittag-Leffler Institute. And in 2008-2009, I was a Research Fellow at SAMSI, as a part of the Program on Algebraic Methods in Systems Biology and Statistics.
I organize the algebraic statisitcs reading seminar; check the information page for the Spring 2013 schedule.
In June 2012, we organized the Algebraic Statistics in the Alleghenies conference at Penn State, supported by the NSF, Packard Foundation, the Eberly College of Science, and the Mathematics and Statistics Departments at Penn State.
