I'm an applied mathematician with a focus in computer science, and I frequently work in data analytics with a specialty in sports analytics. I've worked with the NBA, ESPN's Sport Science, NASCAR teams, and fantasy sports sites. I also direct and work with a team of about two dozen student researchers to provide analytics to Davidson College sports teams.
In addition to my teaching and research, I coauthored Numerical Methods: Design, Analysis, and Computer Implementation of Algorithms with Anne Greenbaum and authored Math Bytes: Google Bombs, Chocolate-Covered Pi, and Other Cool Bits in Computing, which was named a Choice Outstanding Academic Title. Both books were published by Princeton University Press. I also authored When Life is Linear: From Computer Graphics to Bracketology, published by the Mathematical Association of America, which won the Beckenbach Book Prize as a distinguished, innovative book.
