I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Statistical Sciences at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. I joined the faculty at WFU in 2015 after completing my PhD in Statistics at The Ohio State University and my BS in Integrated Mathematics from Shawnee State University. 

My research interests are in Bayesian modeling and spatial-temporal statistics, with applications to epidemiology and the environmental and ecological sciences. My current projects are actively funded by the NIH, NSF, and DOE.
