- Assistant ProfessorDepartment of Mathematics, UH Hilo
I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo, and a member of the ʻIke Wai (water knowledge) team.
One of the ʻIke Wai project goals is the establishment of a data science curriculum at the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo. My academic background in mathematical statistics and the development of computational tools for data analysis will ensure that the program contains a rigorous statistical foundation.
My research interests include the development of specialized statistical tools for the analysis of collections of phylogenetic trees. I also provide statistical support services for the UH Hilo campus and the ʻIke Wai project.
See my research page for more information.
I received my PhD in Statistics from the University of Kentucky in 2015. Subsequently, I worked as a research assistant in the Integrative Epidemiology Unit at the University of Bristol before becoming a faculty member at UH Hilo.
