Professor of Statistical Science


  • B.S., Mathematics, Northwestern State University, 1995
  • M.B.A., Business, Baylor University, 1997
  • Ph.D., Statistics, Baylor University, 2000


My principal area of research is in parameter estimation when data is subject to measurement error. This has application in areas as diverse as marketing, economics, epidemiology, and political science. Recent dissertations I have worked on have been inspired by current pharmaceutical research as well as problems in econometrics. Working on problems driven by real life applications is both exciting for me and a great opportunity for our students.

Outside of statistics I enjoy spending time with my family, watching and playing tennis, and attending Baylor sporting events. I am a member of Christ (Anglican) Church.
