My non-statistical interests include playing viola, running, baking, reading, and board games. I also enjoy spotting small animals (e.g., frogs, chipmunks, snakes, newts, and the occasional beaver or porcupine) and interesting fungi while walking in the woods.

My sweet black lab, Dosi, has mastered the art of asking me to go outside with her; her favorite activities are tracking rabbits, dashing at top speed through the woods, swimming, getting belly rubs, and catching tossed treats.
