Brad Westgate

I have been teaching at Alma since 2015. I particularly enjoy courses that combine theory, applications, and simulations, such as Probability and Statistics, Stochastic Processes, and Data Mining.  My research interests are in applied Bayesian statistics and machine learning.

My other interests include playing card and board games, running with the math faculty, rooting for the Boston sports teams, and recording audiobooks, such as Sherlock Holmes.
