I am currently a Professor in the Department of Biological Statistics and Computational Biology (BSCB) in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and the Department of Statistical Science at Cornell University. I visited the Department of Operations Research and Information Engineering at Cornell in 2003, and was hired in BSCB the following year. From 1987 to 2003 I was a faculty member in the Department of Statistics at the University of Florida. During that period I spent two years as a Research Fellow at the Australian National University, and one year at Colorado State University. My main research interests involve basic statistical methodology including: the bootstrap and Monte Carlo methods, clustering, exact inference, mixed models, generalized linear models, and also applications in bioinformatics. I have taught a variety of courses at Cornell including the second semester of a statistical methods sequence for graduate students from a wide variety of disciplines, as well as core courses for statistics undergraduates, professional masters students, and Ph.D. students in the Fields of Statistics. As a faculty member in BSCB I am also actively involved in the Cornell Statistical Consulting Unit which provides advice on statistical issues to faculty and students at Cornell.
