Some things I've done

During my post-doc, my team and I developed a new measure of geographic isolation intended for rural health research and policy development. Click the link to find a few brief words and a link to the paper in Social Science & Medicine.
For the 2018 March Madness, I built a Bayesian predictive model to isolate team skill. I hoped it would win me a bracket pool. I didn't win. But I learned a lot. And I wrote about my experience (click the arrow to the right).
In development of my appreication for the issues involved in drawing causal inferences from observational data, I created this post to express the apparent importance of dealing with non-linearity when controlling for confounding variables. The post constitutes one demonstration of the issue and minimally explained use of Gaussian processes (R code inside!) to solve the problem.
I made this very brief post about copulas. Annotation is among the code, only.
I've been involved in numerous academic projects that resulted in presentations or published papers. You can find references to much of that in my CV.
