“Exposure, the effective laying open of the data to display the unanticipated, is to us a major portion of data analysis.”
… John Tukey and Martin Wilk (1966)
Statistical reasoning, exploratory data analysis, data visualization, and the development of interactive computational environments that support these activities, comprise the broad areas of my research interests.
Related to computational structure and methods for interactive data analysis, but somewhat removed from software implementation, I am also interested in the philosophical structure of statistical reasoning.
And I am always interested in applications of statistical methods in the natural and computational sciences.
