Philip Yates earned his PhD in statistics from the University of South Carolina in 2006. He earned his MS in biostatistics from the University of Vermont in 1999 and his BS in mathematical sciences from DePaul University in 1997. Before joining the faculty at DePaul, Philip was an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the California State Polytechnic University, Pomona (Cal Poly Pomona) from 2007 to 2010, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics at Saint Michael’s College from 2010 to 2014, and then a tenured Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematics at Saint Michael’s College from 2014 to 2017.

Philip’s research interests mostly involve statistical applications, specifically applications in environmental sciences, hydrology, sports, and statistics education.
