I graduated in 1996 from University of Guelph with a double major BSc degree in Mathematics and Chemistry.
I obtained two separate Master's of Arts degrees in economics; one from the University of Western Ontario in 1998 and one from the University of Guelph in 1999.
In 2004, I received my PhD in Statistics from the University of Western Ontario.
I joined the Department of Mathematics at Laurier in 2004 as an assistant professor.
The main theme of my research program is to develop statistical methodologies for analyzing data from complex systems, such as large-scale social survey data, environmental data, financial risk management data and genomic data.
My current research projects include: developing methodologies for analyzing complex survey data using stochastic regression model, designing of resampling methods for generalized multilevel models, and employing computational methods to achieve accurate estimation of financial model parameters so as to aid risk management of regulators and practitioners.
