About

Some stuff about me...

I’m currently employed as a data scientist and consultant. I work on a broad range of topics, but recurring themes include: marketing, merchandising, and sales modeling, forecasting, GIS, geostatistics, spatial statistics, and data visualization.

Before that, I worked on modeling rational norms and cognitive limitations as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Toronto with Jonathan Weisberg. I received my doctorate from the University of Southern California in 2015, working on similar themes with Kenny Easwaran, Ralph Wedgwood, Jacob Ross, and Richard Arratia (mathematics).

I have an MA from the University of Manitoba on Bayesian measures of confirmation—the theory of what evidentially impacts what—under Rhonda Martens, Chris Tillman, and Brad C. Johnson (statistics). Every now and then I also sit a Society of Actuaries exam.

Here is a picture of the last four generations of my academic genealogy:
