I’m a PhD student in statistics at Carnegie Mellon University, after previously earning my BSc in physics at the University of Texas at Austin while doing research on statistical methods to detect unexpected radioactive sources using mobile detectors. (I preferred to call it “finding radioactive people at football games.”)
You can contact me at , and find my publications on ORCID. My CV is here.
Statistics Done Wrong, a woefully complete guide to the many ways that statistics is abused in science. Now available as a book published by No Starch Press!
ipbLatex, an Invision Power Board plugin to support embedded LaTeX mathematics. (No longer maintained.)
I collect bits of wisdom and amusement:
The Microcosmographia Academica, FM Cornford’s cynical 1908 guide to the academic life, including detailed instructions on obstructing progress.
“The Principle of Sound Learning is that the noise of vulgar fame should never trouble the cloistered calm of academic existence. Hence, learning is called sound when no one has ever heard of it… If you should write a book (you had better not), be sure that it is unreadable; otherwise you will be called ‘brilliant’ and forfeit all respect.”
