Welcome to my website! I am a graduate student at Clemson University in the Mathematical Sciences Department.

About

I am currently a graduate student at Clemson University in the Mathematical Sciences Department.

My hobbies are board games, card games, tennis, cycling, and golf.  Some board games I have been playing recently are Timeline, Above and Below, Lords of Waterdeep, Imhotep, and One Night Ultimate Werewolf.  My favorite card games are Euchre and Bridge.  I like watching Clemson football and basketball and going to baseball games.

 

 

Research

My current research is in group testing by Bayesian statistical modeling with Dr. McMahan.   The Aptima Combo 2 Assay tests for Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae.  If patient samples are pooled together and subsequently the pool sample yields a negative test result, then you could say every individual has a negative test result.  Pooling tests can save time and money in a clinical laboratory.

The goal of my research is to model a heterogeneous patient population, with imperfect testing in various testing formats.

My previous research with Dr. Rouse solved a conjecture by Paul Bruckman and Peter Anderson on the prime divisibility of the Fibonacci entry point.
