I got my B.A. in Mathematics (1982) and Diploma in Mathematical Statistics (1983) from the University of Cambridge. I have a PhD in Statistics (1987) from the Department of Statistics, University of California, Berkeley. I used to work at the Department of Statistics, University of Michigan (1987-2006).

My research is on the interface between the theory and application of Statistics. I have worked on a wide range of statistical problems ranging over astronomy, athletics, concrete, cosmetics, fungicides, fuel filters, marketing of cars, obesity and schizophrenia. I have also served as a consultant to industry on statistical issues.
