Positions

Overview

  • I began my biostatistics career in 1998 as the Biostatistician and Data Manager for the Nutrition Education & Research Program at the University of Nevada, Reno. I have worked on clinical trials examining body weight, nutrition, environment tobacco smoke, multiple sclerosis, and HIV. In 1997, I taught my first undergraduate statistics course. Since then, my teaching has focused on undergraduate and graduate statistics and research methods. In 2007, I started teaching statistics on-line.

    I initially joined the Department of Biostatistics in 2004 and have just recently rejoined the Department in 2016. I have a Ph.D. in Criminal Justice from the State University of New York at Albany and an M.A. in Psychology from the University of Nevada, Reno. My research interests include problem-based learning, teaching online statistics, adolescent at-risk behaviors, microaggression, complementary and alternative medicine, general and generalized linear models and count data.
