After receiving a BS in Mathematics from Tennessee Wesleyan College and an MS in Mathematics from Tennessee Technological University, I attended the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill for my PhD in Biostatistics. My doctoral research proposed the marginalized zero-inflated Poisson model, focusing on providing marginal inference for count data with excess zeroes.

I joined the UAB Department of Biostatistics in July 2016. My research interests include categorical data analysis, particularly zero-inflated models, and meta-analysis for single case design data. I have collaborated across many disciplines, most recently in injury prevention and dental research.
