   Research Interests
My research interests include survival analysis, statistics education, sports analytics, and statistical consulting.

Click here to see R code to generate SemiNonParametric survival function estimates from use of an exponential base function. The code also compares SNP estimatation to nonparametric Kaplan-Meier estimation and graphs both types of functions. The resulting graph is shown here.

   Statistical Thoughts
Statistics is not a discipline like physics, chemistry or biology where we study a subject to solve problems in the same subject. We study statistics with the main aim of solving problems in other disciplines. (C. R. Rao)

In a world in which the price of calculation continues to decrease rapidly, but the price of theorem proving continues to hold steady or increase, elementary economics indicates that we ought to spend a larger and larger fraction of our time on calculation. (J. Tukey)
