Rose-Hulman operates on a quarter system. Each statistics course meets for four 50-minute periods per week
over the course of a 10-week term. While the content for each of my courses is hosted on Moodle (our course
management system), a brief summary of each course I teach is provided below. When available, additional
information on each course can be obtained by clicking on the title of the course.
I use Specifications Grading in each of my courses.
Senior Projects and Theses
The senior capstone experience can fall into one of the following categories:
- Statistical Collaboration: This consists of an analysis of data to advance another
scientific discipline; this is generally provided by a client. This is generally viewed as a
- Numerical Investigation of Existing Method: This consists of characterizing the
behavior of an existing method in a previously unexplored setting using numerical simulations.
- Development of New Statistical Theory: After researching an open problem in the
field, a novel approach is proposed and characterized using theory and/or numerical simulations.
- State of the Art: An in-depth summary of methodological developments for a
topic in the field. This extensive literature review should represent a novel contribuion to the field.
Students interested in completing a senior capstone experience in statistics with me should
review my Capstone Syllabus; if you would like to proceed after
reviewing that document, contact me via email.
A list of past projects/theses I have supervised can be found
on my research page.
