Our friend and colleague Phil Spector passed away on 15 January 2020, at home and surrounded by friends. Phil was a generous, quick-witted wine officianado who also loved professional wrestling, music, and helping people. He was also greatly amused that one of his own photos used to be a top internet search result for the word "beard". We hope you continue to find these materials enlightening.
My name is Phil Spector and I used to be the Applications Manager and Software Consultant for the Statistical Computing Facility in the Department of Statistics at University of California at Berkeley. I was also an Adjunct Professor in the Statistics department, where I taught courses in Statistical Computing.
I started at UC Berkeley in 1987. Before that, I was a Senior Research Statistician at SAS Institute for four years, right after receiving my Ph.D. from Texas A&M University. In my deeper past, I've been a high school teacher and an analytical chemist. (Feel free to look at my resume if you'd like to know the details.)
