Blogistic Reflections is an attempt to share my knowledge of statistics and computing, focusing on data analysis using the R programming language. I received a Masters of Science degree in Statistics from the University of Wisconsin in 2005. Since then, I have worked as a biostatistician on both clinical trials and in observational research. I have a strong interest in weaving technologies, both old and new, together to create innovative methods of sharing data. I am an active contributor to the R-help mailing list, and have been using R daily for over five years now. I currently live in Minneapolis, MN.
