This picture was taken during a trip to Castle Neuschwanstein (in the background) at the IPMI 2011 conference.

I received a Ph.D. in Biostatistics from the Florida State University Department of Statistics. I received my M.S. in Biostatistics from the Florida State University Department of Statistics in 2009 and my B.S. in Mathematics from the Tulane University Department of Mathematics, New Orleans, LA in 2007.

My main research interests lie in statistical image analysis and in particular statistical shape analysis of parameterized curves and surfaces. With increasing numbers of imaging data, especially in medicine, there is a high demand for automated statistical methods that can be used to model shapes of objects present in images.
