BiographyMy mission statement: to demonstrate the essential utility of statistical methods. I have worked with engineers, applied scientists, physicians, marketeers, and fianacial analysts, all of whom required statistical methods to make decisions in the face of empirical data. I spent many years teaching Six Sigma for Process Improvement and Design for Six Sigma (DFSS) courses in industrial settings. I believe that statistics as a discipline is the the embodiment of the scientific method: observe, hypothesize, test, repeat.
My educational background is somewhat ecclectic. I have a B.A. in Physical Anthropology, an M.S. in Statistics, an M.S. in Operations Research, and a Ph.D. in Industrial and Systems Engineering, with a specialization in Engineering Statistics.
