About the Author

Martin A. (Marty) Hamilton is Professor Emeritus of Statistics at Montana State University – Bozeman (MSU). He received his BS (1961) and MS (1962) degrees in Statistics from the University of Wyoming, where he was twice an Academic All-American football player. In 1963 he studied biostatistics at Aberdeen University in Scotland as a Fullbright Scholar. He received a Ph.D. degree in Statistics from Stanford University in 1968. Under the direction of Prof. Rupert G. Miller, Jr., he wrote a dissertation on the sequential design of bioassay experiments. He volunteered to serve a hitch as a Commissioned Officer in the US Public Health Service, and was assigned to the Biometry Branch of the National Cancer Institute. Through his collaborations there, he first realized the potential for statistical thinking in microbiology. In 1970, Dr. Hamilton joined the Department of Mathematical Sciences at MSU. At MSU, he developed a serious interest in the application of statistical methods to microbiology, particularly microbial assays. Microbial assays present some novel problems to the statistician. Although the goals are similar in principle to conventional bioassays, the statistics are different because the subjects of the experiment, microbes, are abundant but difficult to observe. He collaborated and consulted with microbiologists on many occasions and had a part-time appointment to the Dept. of Microbiology for a few years. During 1979, he was a visiting scientist at the National Institute for Environmental Health Sciences in Research Triangle Park, NC, where he worked primarily on problems arising in toxicology and epidemiology. In 1980, he was promoted to the rank of Professor.

In 1991, Prof. Hamilton joined the interdisciplinary research team at the Center for Biofilm Engineering (CBE), MSU, where he collaborated on a broad spectrum of projects. At the CBE, he was attracted to the new methodologies being created for biofilm research and germicide testing. In those co
