Not quite dead

September 18, 2013

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted and several things have changed. First, I am no longer a graduate student at the University of Minnesota. I finished my MS in statistics in Dec 2012 and my PhD in applied stats in education in May 2013. Second, I will be starting a post-doc at the University of Iceland where my position will be an amalgam of ecology, mathematics, statistics, and education. It should be quite the adventure. Third, a recent graduate of my program and I started a consulting company. We are available for hire and you can learn more about us at Parsimony. We have worked with the Minnesota Department of Health, Capella University, and other private and public organizations. Parsimony primarily focuses on statistical, psychometric, and evaluation consulting. I have also recently completed a stint as the statistical consultant for the Institute of Child Development at the University of Minnesota. Finally, and most importantly, I really hope to revitalize this blog. I intend to do some more R modeling and programming, specifically I intend to co-author a multilevel zero-inflated and hurdle models R package. All the code will be available at my github site until it’s on CRAN. I also intend to blog about the mathematical and statistical problems that I encounter as I transition back into having an ecological focus as a post-doc.

  1. Welcome back, I just found your blog this semester. I am just starting down your path, working on my PhD and seeing the light that is the Bayesian method. I was hoping if you wouldn’t mind sharing some of your .tex and JAGS code with me. In particular from your multilevel talk to the CFA folks and your writing on Applied Bayesian Guide from 2009/10.
