Jason Wilson joined the Biola faculty in 2008 after receiving his Ph.D from the University of California, Riverside. His calling in life is to disciple students and this is his guiding principle as he seeks to teach, research, and serve as a professor for the glory of God. In graduate school he extended the probability of correct selection (PCS) statistic to high dimensional data and was able to successfully apply it to microarrays in genetics. Since coming to Biola he has focused more on undergraduate research, which has included publications on Yahtzee probabilities and the analysis of curveballs. Recently, he has begun focusing his writing on the integration of the Christian faith and mathematics/statistics. In other outlets - Jason enjoys statistical consulting and has worked on jobs at individual, business, state, and national levels. He is active in professional mathematical and statistical societies. Above all these, Jason enjoys talking and praying with students whether on campus or in his home. He lives with his wife and two daughters in Whittier, CA.
