## Welcome!

I am a Postdoctoral Associate of the Department of Statistical Science at Duke University, working with Professors Li Ma and Cliburn Chan.

- Prior to this, I obtained my PhD in Statistics from The Ohio State University, advised by Professors Matthew T. Pratola and Thomas J. Santner.
- Prior to this, I obtained my BS in Mathematics from the University of Maryland.

My research interests include

**Bayesian nonparametrics**: stick-breaking models, clustering, covariate-dependent mixture models, application to flow cytometry**Bayesian regression trees**: sensitivity analysis, computer experiments, multiobjective optimization

## Resources

Below are (free!) resources that I've found useful in doing research.

### Writing

- Mathematical Writing by Donald E. Knuth, Tracy Larrabee, and Paul M. Roberts
- A quick read.
- The Science of Scientific Writing by George Gopen
- A classic.

### Computing

- Advanced R by Hadley Wickham
- The sections "Foundations" and "Functional programming" seem to be universally helpful to anyone using R.

### Research

- Org Mode
- Org Mode can do everything Markdown can and also much, much more. I use Org Mode to write my project logs for which TODO/DONE tags are handy. I also used Org Mode to create this website.
- Quarto
- I use Quarto to share "in-progress" simulation results or data analysis with collaborators.
- Overleaf
- Like Google Docs, but for LaTeX. It now has a Overleaf submit to arXiv feature.
