About me

I received my Bachelor of Science (1978) and Master of Arts (1980) degrees in mathematics from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. My master's thesis, which is in the area of experiment design and linear models, was directed by David G. Herr. I then received my PhD in statistics (1985) from Cornell University. My PhD dissertation, which is in the area of decision theory, was directed by George Casella. After graduating from Cornell, I joined the faculty in the mathematics department at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff. In 1990 I relocated to Lafayette to join the statistics department at UL Lafayette, nee the University of Southwestern Louisiana. I am now associate professor in the mathematics department.

I teach statistics at all levels, provide statistical advice to students and faculty, and conduct research in statistics. My main research interests are in the areas of decision theory, Bayesian statistics, linear models, and multivariate analysis.
