An approximate answer to the right problem is worth a good deal more than an exact answer to an approximate problem. ~John Tukey
All those who drink of this remedy recover in a short time, except those whom it does not help, who die. Therefore, it is obvious that it fails only in incurable cases. ~Galen (c. 100 A.D.)
I am currently a research biostatistician within the Department of Public Health Sciences.
The Department is housed within the College of Medicine at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston. I completed my undergraduate degree at Augusta State
University where I earned a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics
with Minor work in Chemistry in 2005. In the time between my undergraduate and graduate work, I taught High School Mathematics at Hephzibah High School in Hephzibah, Georgia.
I followed teaching by completing my Master of Science in Biostatistics from the Medical College of Georgia in 2008.
My Masters thesis was completed under the guidance of Varghese George, PhD.
I am currently working within the DBE Collaborative Unit, in which I have the opportunity to participate in various research projects within many different
departments of the University. My current collaborations include work within endocrinology, clinical neuroscience, as well as radiology.
My research interests include statistical modeling of correlated data and statistical graphic techniques and their application to macro and micro vascular
complications in type I diabetic patients. I am additionally working on statistical methods to analyze addictive behavior data and responses to drug taking cues.
