I am an Associate Professor of Statistical Science and
Computer Science at Duke University.
I received my PhD in Biomedical Informatics from Stanford University, and a BA in Computer Science from the University of California, Berkeley.
My research interests include bioinformatics, stochastic modeling, machine learning, and statistical computing. I teach courses in multivariate analysis, stochastic modeling and Monte Carlo methods, computational structural biology, and statistics for bioinformatics.
More information about my research and a list of recent publications are available from my homepage.
My personal activities
center around rock and ice climbing and mountaineering. I
also enjoy a variety of other outdoor sports and training
activities including running, hiking, paddling, and
cycling. I also maintain non-professional interests in related scientific areas such as exercise physiology and sports nutrition.
