I'm a recent graduate from the University of Arkansas receiving my M.S in Statistics and Analytics. I'm a scientist at heart who has a passion for statistical inference, machine learning, and software development. While I have a wide breadth of experience in data science, some specific areas of interest include geospatial analytics, natural language processing, and predictive modeling utilizing advanced statistical methods.
In addition to my teaching and coursework, I was also involved in a research project with Dr. Linyin Cheng using Bayesian inference and extreme value theory to determine if urbanization is impacting the intensity and frequency of heat waves. You can find out more about that on my research page. I'll also go a bit more into depth about my previous astrophysics research studying x-ray binaries under Dr. Bret Lehmer. While I moved on to focus on research more relevant to my current coursework, I still tried to stay involved in astronomy outreach through our on campus club S.P.A.C.E. Hogs.

While I've moved on from my teaching position, I've decided to temporarily keep up some of my review material for Differential Calculus on my teaching page.
Lastly, if you're interested in machine learning, python, R, cats, or my general thought process feel free to check out my blog. Warning: there's a non-zero chance it'll be one Kaggle competition and 500 photos of my two cats...
