I'm Grayson, a doctoral student (Statistics and Forestry) in the Finley Lab at Michigan State University. Before coming to Michigan State, I received my BA in Mathematics with a concentration in statistics at Reed College.

My research interests include hierarchical Bayesian modeling, small area estimation, applications of statistics to forestry, and education. For a list of my research (and other) endeavors see my CV.

Outside of research and academia, I've worked as a Data Scientist contracting with the USDA Forest Service. I also enjoy developing and maintaining R packages, some of which are highlighted below:

I enjoy exploring new places with my dog Dude, camping, cycling, and trying my best to perfect my home espresso skills and technique.
