Welcome to my personal website. Prior to academia, I worked as a Senior Statistician & Senior Biostatistician in the medical device industry for 8 years. Concurrently, I earned a PhD in Statistics Education from the University of Minnesota (co-advisors: Joan Garfield & Robert delMas) where I had previously earned an MS in Statistics (advisor: Douglas Hawkins). My current research interests include statistics education, data science education, and educational assessment. In 2021, I joined the Consortium for the Advancement of Undergraduate Statistics Education (CAUSE; www.causeweb.org) as co-Associate Director for Research (with Laura Le at University of Minnesota), so please get in touch with me if you'd like to get involved in our work to advance statistics and data science education research by connecting people, disseminating resources, and advocating for impact.
