**Interests:**

I chose to become a statistician because of the myriad of different mathematical applications to the real world available in the field. I have had the opportunity to work in the medical field deriving methodology to analyze a new branch of science arising from the study of the human genome. My work involves analysis of different types of microarray (genetic) data that don’t conform to the usual assumptions needed for statistical analyses. Currently, I am developing new statistical techniques to analyze such data with particular interest in clustering, correlation, and outlier detection.
