__Short Biography: __

I was born and raised in a suburb of New York City
with 2 brothers (twins, 1 year younger) and a sister (5 years younger). I attended the State University of New York – College at
Geneseo, where I obtained a BA in mathematics and psychology along with a
minor in physics. After college I
worked as an actuarial analysts for about 5 years and earned my MA in applied
mathematics during that time at Hunter
College. I am now a 2^{nd}-year
PhD student in statistics at Rice
University with interests in the areas of regression analysis, multivariate
analysis, nonparametric testing and density estimation, visualization, and
environmental statistics.
