About Darcie Delzell

Dr. Delzell spends part of her time researching theoretical statistics, but is also involved in various collaborations related to biology and medicine.  When she is not teaching or researching, Dr. Delzell and her husband bike around town with their 3 young daughters.  She can often be spotted at Tate's Ice Cream with the aforementioned munchkins.  She likes geeky statistics jokes and Cajun food.
