RESEARCH AND WORK INTERESTS
|My doctoral dissertation involves filter theory. In this work, I developed theory for applying filtering techniques to a class of non-stationary data called M-stationary processes. I illustrated these new developments on simulated and real world data.|
|My current research interests revolve around the study of the following fields:|
àTime series analysis
àStatistical computing and simulation
I have obtained widespread teaching experience as an instructor for many courses in both math departments and statistics departments. I can plan, design and teach classes for various audiences. In addition, I look forward to implementing the use of new technology to further the knowledge of my students and encouraging students of different demographic backgrounds to pursue careers in fields involving mathematics.
|Associate Professor, Department of Mathematics 2003-present|
|Instructor, Department of Statistical Science 1999-2000|
I had full responsibility for teaching undergraduate statistical courses: preparing notes, holding lectures and office hours, designing and grading exams, coordinating a teaching assistant, and assigning final grades.
|Seminar Associate, Summer Institute in Mathematics for Undergraduates 1999|
I assisted the seminar leader in teaching and conducting laboratories. The primary goal of the summer seminar was to promote minority interest in graduate mathematical research.
|Teaching Assistant, Department of Statistical Science 1998-1999|
My responsibilities included conducting statistical labs, grading labs and homework, holding office hours and assisting the professor as needed.
|Teaching Assistant, Department of Mathematics 1994-1997|
I had full responsibility for teaching undergraduate mathematical and statistical courses: preparing notes, holding lectures and office hours, designing and grading quizzes and exams, and assigning final grades.
RESEARCH AND CONSULTING EXPERIENCE
|Biostatistician, Office of Research and Sponsored Programs 1999-2003, Texas Woman's University, Denton, TX|
As the campus biostatistician, I assist faculty with 1) designing their current experiments, 2) writing of proposals to obtain grants, 3) creating databases, 4) analyzing data and 5) submitting statistical results for publication. I also conduct statistical workshops intended to further the knowledge of both faculty members and graduate students.
|Summer Intern, Semiconductor Products Sector 1997 & 1998, Motorola, Austin, TX|
As a summer intern, I worked with engineers in many departments designing experiments, performing quality control and modeling data.
|Research Assistant, Department of Civil Engineering Summer 1996, Texas Tech University, Lubbock, TX|
I modeled skid resistance data for the Department of Civil Engineering and the Texas Department of Transportation.
