Background

Past Political Activity

List of Political and Civic Organizations belonged to

2008-Present Member, American Statistical Association 2009-Present Member, International Biometrics Society, Western North American Region

Organization and Advocacy Experience

I have no experience in organizing, representing, advocating for, or considering the interests of groups, organizations, or associations in Colorado.

Statement

To ensure a bipartisan, unbiased districting process.

Statement on Working with Consensus

As a research scientist and biostatistician I strive to be objective and critical in the evaluation of my work and the work of others. Yet I remain positive and productive and recognize that decisions must be made to make progress. Often these decisions can be seen as subjective. No human process is without potential flaws and biases. We must understand the goals of the redistricting process and how accurate representation is a fundamental part of democracy and then make decisions which ensure the new districts move our state towards a democratic and representative government.

Relevant Analytic Skills for Commission

As a PhD level biostatistican, I have statistical education on sampling theory, weighting and uncertainty. As a consulting biostatistician I collaborate with medical researchers to first identify the problem, understand the measures and data relevant to the problem and apply appropriate statistical tools to address questions related to the problem. I do this on a daily basis and have been successful in my application of logic scientific research as is evidenced by my resume.
