I have been extremely lucky to work in many different realms, including as a Journalist at the New York Times, data scientist at Dealer.com in Vermont, and as a "data artist in residence" at tech startup Conduce in California. Currently, I am a PhD student in biostatistics at Vanderbilt University. Recently (May '15), I graduated from the University of Vermont where I majored in mathematics and statistics and minored in computer science.
My current research interests include: statistical genetics, data visualization and scientific communication.
If you want to read about me and my pursuits in a more eloquently written form, I was recently profiled by my alma mater.
When I am not in "school mode" I love to bike places, read science fiction and wander around gardens/musuems.
The crazy line at the begining of this page is a random walk. At each step it moves a single unit in a random direction. I am letting it run for 5000 steps and letting your computer's (or phone's) browser do all the calculations. Click on the simulation to generate a new one. To learn more about random walks see here.
Have a fantastic day!
