My statistical research has focused on methods for fitting nonlinear relationships to data. I have also worked with Cynthia Lord, (University of Florida, FMEL), Barry Alto, (University of Florida FMEL), and Tim Lysyk to organize symposia for the Entomological Society of America annual meeting, on novel statistics for entomologists.  The symposium presentations can be accessed at the Entomological Society of America website

For examples of the kinds of statistical application that have interested me please see:
