2006 - 2006 | Stochastic Processes (Math 352) Bellarmine University Enrollment: roughly 10 students |
A course combining the basics of probability and stochastic processes. In addition to introducing the Poisson process, the course teachs about Markov chains and processes, including topics from queueing and renewal theory. For more information see the syllabus for this semesters' offering. | |
2005 - 2006 | Probability and Mathematical Statistics (Math 314/5) Bellarmine University Enrollment: roughly 10 students |
Two semester sequence to provide a statistical foundation for math, actuarial science and computer science majors. For more information see the syllabi for Probability and Mathematical Statistics. | |
2001 - 2005 | Probability and Mathematical Statistics (PHST 661/2) University of Louisville Enrollment: 5 to 10 students |
Two semester sequence to provide a foundation for future statisticians and biostatisticians. | |
Summer 2005 | Introduction to R (PHST 671) University of Louisville Enrollment: 8 (plus several sitting in) |
A 2-credit course introducing students to the R statistical package. The focus of the course was primarily towards programming, graphics, and data management rather than statistical analysis. | |
Spring 2005 | Bayesian Statistics (PHST 691) University of Louisville Enrollment: 4 |
One semester introduction to Bayesian methods in statistics. | |
Spring 2003 - 2005 | Biostatistics Seminar (PHST 602) University of Louisville Enrollment: roughly 15 |
Ongoing seminar series. Eventually morphed into a combination Seminar and Journal Club in the near future, and then morphed entirely to a Journal Club. | |
1998 - 2003 | Introduction to Data Management and Statistical Computing (140.609) Johns Hopkins University Enrollment: 300 students per year |
One quarter 2-credit introduction to data management and the Stata statistical package. Taught as a lecture in the computer lab, via CD, and via distance education. | |
1999 - 2000 | Advanced Probability I (140.692) Johns Hopkins University Enrollment: roughly 8 |
One quarter 3-credit course with the ambitious goal of teaching the basics of measure theory and measure-theoretic probability. |
2006 | Co-Faculty Mentor, Math Club |
Helping the student-run Math Club. | |
2006 | Founding Kappa Mu Epsilon Chapter |
Researched possible mathematics honor societies. Found that Kappa Mu Epsilon provided the best fit for Bellarmine. The application will be ready when students are recruited early in the Fall, 2006 semester. |
2002 - 2005 | Dual Degree Program |
Worked with the Department of Mathematics to develop a dual degree program, so that promising students could take coursework leading to a Masters degree (MSPH) in Biostatistics-Decision Science from the Department of Bioinformatics and Biostatistics while completing a Ph.D. in Applied and Industrial Mathematics in the Department of Mathematics. After getting the degree program set up, worked on keeping things running smoothly and fine-tuning the requirements. | |
2002 - 2004 | Qualifying Exam Committee |
Exam development for qualifying exams. | |
2002 - 2005 | Data Committee (Chair) |
Responsible for backing up all Biostat faculty and staff computers to tape, in case of disaster. |
2004 - 2005 | MPH Admissions Committee (Chair) |
Developed MPH Admissions Process and Requirements with others on the committee. Helped admit the first MPH class for the SPHIS. |
2004 - 2005 | Distiguished Teaching Committee |
Choosing the distiguished teachers at the University of Louisville. |
