  • I graduated from Duke (Trinity, '92) as a math major.
  • After Duke, I worked as an actuary for two years before getting my Ph.D. in statistics in 1999.
  • I returned to Duke as a professor in 2002. My main areas of research include statistical methods for protecting data privacy, for handling data with missing values and errors, for combining information across multiple data sources, and for statistics and public policy.
  • I also am a part time employee of the Census Bureau, helping them modernize their data privacy protection practices.
  • Outside of work, I am an avid sports fan, enjoy vegetarian food, and love to explore hiking trails in Duke Forest.
  • I would be pleased to talk about statistics, what it is like to be an actuary or a professor, and of course what Duke was like when I was a student compared to now.
