I am a Scientist, Skeptic, and Professor at Bryant University. My goal is to make technical subject matters widely accessible and to use my analytical and computational skills to assist anyone with their science-related problems.

I am a big fan of Babylon 5 and MST3K, and have a a broad interest in scientific reasoning and quantifying uncertainties. As such, I have published in disease modeling, paleoclimate, neuroscience, and molecular biology. I also work in science pedagogy, always looking for improved ways to communicate science, its processes, and the confidence we can place on claims. As such, I use my blog to explore the intersection of science and society.

I sincerely enjoy helping develop tools to aid in quantitative research, so please contact me if you'd like to collaborate!
