Clark Bowman’s favorite courses to teach have been in computational probability and statistics, and he hopes to bring a “big data” flavor to the statistics curriculum at Hamilton.

His dissertation focused on applied statistics — especially uncertainty quantification — and high-performance modeling in cellular biology. He especially enjoys using statistical tools to connect mathematical models with real data, and he is currently working on large-scale data analytics and modeling of biomarkers from wearable devices (e.g., Fitbits) in collaboration with a research group at the University of Michigan Medical School. 

Bowman has a bachelor’s degree in mathematics and a bachelor’s degree in physics from the University of Rochester and a master’s degree and doctorate in applied mathematics from Brown University. He taught for one year as a postdoctoral fellow in the Mathematics Department at the University of Michigan.
