Oregon Institute of TechnologyOregon Tech Math Department
Welcome to my homepage through the Oregon Institute of Technology where I work as an associate professor of Applied Mathematics.  My academic background includes bachelor's degrees in economics and applied mathematics as well as holding an M.S. in Applied Mathematics from University of Washington and a Masters in Applied Statistics from Pennsylvania State University.  During my time as a student, I also spent substantial time in graduate coursework in economics at Oregon State University.

With this diverse background, I have found the best part of teaching is when students of different disciplines are able to recognize the usefulness of tools outside of their primary field of study.  My primary interest while in graduate school was of the management of renewable and non-renewable resources given economic and physical constraints.  My current interests are primarily focused in applied statistics, data science, and machine learning methods.
