About me: I am an assistant professor of biostatistics at USC. I conduct research in spatial statistics, primarily applied to environmental data. I also teach courses in introductory statistics, inference, data analysis and spatial statistics.

Why I use git: I code in R almost exclusively, and while the statistical computing aspect of my research is primarily a solo endeavor, I like to keep my R code version controlled and in one place along with the Latex documents that eventually become presentations, papers or course materials. I've developed a set of R tutorials that can be accessed here.

Currently I teach four courses: Undergraduate Introduction to Statistics (HP340), Graduate Data Analysis (PM511a), Graduate Mathematical Statistics (PM522b), and Spatial Statistics (PM569). Course materials for the latter two courses are available from my GitHub site.
