What's in your data?   Truth  


"Perhaps the most important, all-encompassing reason to have a statistician on your project is that it gives you the best shot at uncovering the truth contained in your data and allows you to make the best decisions based on what you find."

"Teaching our short course and mentoring our students are my favorite parts of my job."
