I completed my PhD in
Statistics at McGill University in 2006.

is entitled, "Stationarity in a

post-election audits. Here is a paper (pdf)
I co-authored on the
subject, published in The

including adjusted plus-minus ratings in the NBA, the
relative age effect phenomenon, and quantifying the effects of
usage in Major League Baseball.
