The analyses that get me excited are not Google crunching a terabyte of web ad data in order to optimize revenue… [but rather] the biologists who are absolutely passionate about this one swampfly and now they can use R and they can understand it.
Hi! I’m an Assistant Professor of Statistics in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Carleton College. I teach statistics at all levels of the curriculum and am passionate about communicating the beauty and power of modern statistical methods to my students. My research focuses on incorporating realistic computation and visualization into the classroom, exploring the potential of visual inference, developing better visualizations to explore complex models, and developing useful and useable R packages.

In June I attended an ACM workshop focused on how the ACM can facilitate sharing elements of a data science curriculum across institutions. This is my recap.
The Upshot takes a look at who’s in and who’s out of the first Republican debate taking into account sampling variability.
