Hello! My name is David and I'm an assistant professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at American University. I like to build statistical methods to analyze genetic data, and I've been trending toward studying population genetics in recent years. Before my current position, I finished a postdoctoral scholarship at the University of Chicago, working under Matthew Stephens, where I studied hierarchical modeling approaches to analyze sequencing data. I obtained my Ph.D. in Statistics at the University of Washington under Peter Hoff. My graduate work was on the statistical analysis of tensor data. You can read more about my work on my research page. If you want to see any code associated with my research, check out my Github page. I also publicly post all of my teaching materials, which you can find on my teaching page.
