I’m a bit of a mathematician, a bit of a statistician, and a bit of a programmer. Since 2012 I’ve worked in the Center for Statistical Research and Methodology at the US Census Bureau. I’m currently researching nonparametric Bayesian methods in the context of missing data problems, and I’m a part of the team that maintains the Bureau’s record linkage software. I like to write code and dabble in different programming languages (I’m partial to functional style). When I’m not doing the math, I like to go to cheap rock shows in small rooms. I’m married to the absolutely fantastic Martine Workman.
I made this site to practice writing and exposition, to flesh out ideas, and to collect notes-to-self. Enjoy your stay.
