My wife Katrina, son Tommy and daughter Veronica.

Background:  I am currently an Associate Professor of Statistics at The Ohio State University. I received a Ph.D. in Biostatistics from the Department of Statistics at Florida State University in 2012. I received my M.S. in Biostatistics from the the same department in 2009 and my B.S. in Mathematics from the Department of Mathematics at Tulane University in 2007.

Research Interests: My research focuses on methodology development for statistical shape analysis and functional data analysis. I am particularly interested in applications of these approaches in biology, medical imaging, biometrics and computer vision, among others. You can find relevant software and additional details under the CBMS Conference on EFSDA link.
