About Me

I grew up in Cache Valley and love to be in the mountains (hiking, camping, hunting). I like to lift, run, play basketball and golf, and watch anything funny (stand-up, TV series, etc.) I also enjoy reading and having conversations about philosophy, religion, politics, and self-improvement.

Research Focus/Study

Predictive and inferential modeling (traditional and machine learning), programming (Python, C++, R, SQL, SAS, MATLAB), finance (HFT, time series).

Why I came to USU

I loved my time here as an undergraduate and wanted to gain a deeper understanding of -- and proficiency in applying -- statistics, machine learning, and computing.
