I am currently a Professor and Interim Deputy Chair in the Department of Biostatistics    at MD Anderson Cancer Center.  I am also an adjunct member of the Graduate Faculty at Texas A&M University.  I received my PhD from the Department of Statistics at Texas A&M University in August, 2000, under the direction of Raymond J. Carroll and Naisyin Wang.  I became interested in Statistics through my undergraduate mentor, Marlin Eby, while getting my B.A. in Mathematics Education at Messiah College in Grantham, PA.  Click here for a list of students from Messiah that have gone on for postgraduate degrees in Statistics

My primary research interests include statistical methods for analyzing functional data, image data, and other types of correlated object data, and also methods for analyzing various types of data encountered in bioinformatics, including mass spectrometry and 2-d gel proteomics data, microarray data, and array cGH data.  In my bioinformatics work, I frequently collaborate with colleagues in the Department of Bioinformatics.  I also collaborate with numerous researchers at MD Anderson on various research projects involving gastro-intestinal related cancers.

Here is my professional vitae, and links to my papers, talks, and awards.  I haven't updated these so much the past few years, so a more current update with papers and links is available in a very nice format on my bepress web page

 My wife Dana and I have two daughters, Taylor and Brooke, ages 11 and 10, and one son Evan, age 5.  We live in Pearland, TX.  You can find other personal information about me on my personal webpage.
