I opened up the statistics page today. I am transtitioning into new committments in the world of statistics in addition to my engineering responsibilties. I believe that these things go together. Many of the great statisticians of the twentieth century were also experimenters, such as William Gosset (otherwise known as "Student"), and Sir Ronald Fisher. I have no hope of placing myself in such august company, but I can certainly aspire to emulate their success.

Philosophically, I am a logical probabilist. This seems to naturally coexist with a Thomist take on philosophy, but logical probability is currently much neglected in statistics. I am going to explore this topic, primarily out of personal interest, but perhaps something more will come of it in time.
