Mathematician, Data Scientist, Teacher

My proclivity and ability lies in the application of mathematics, statistics, and computer science to the solution of various business problems. In particular, I have chosen to focus on the insurance industry. I currently work in the research and development department of Farmers Insurance Group where I research and build generalized linear and neural network models to address operational challenges and aid in the setting of rate relativities. I hold the ACAS designation from the Casualty Actuarial Society and a PH.D in pure mathematics.  I have recently been focusing my research on the application of theoretical mathematics to predictive analytics.  This has led to increased model precision while retaining model perspicuity.  In general, I am always looking to expand my set of techniques and my industry knowledge.

Previously, I taught undergraduate mathematics courses for over six years. The content of these courses ranged from freshman mathematics to abstract algebra. I have produced original, published research in pure and actuarial mathematics. I led the metal department at WBGU to digitize all of its content and make it available to all DJs.  I have also worked in the retail industry as an analyst at Sterling Jewelers and as a database and data cube programmer at National Interstate Insurance Company.
