I am Senior Lecturer in Statistics and Data Science in the School of Maths at the University of Edinburgh, Associate Professor of the Practice in the Department of Statistical Science at Duke University, and Professional Educator and Data Scientist at RStudio. I received my Ph.D. in Statistics from the University of California, Los Angeles. My work focuses on innovation in statistics and data science pedagogy, with an emphasis on computing, reproducible research, student-centered learning, and open-source education.
I am an Assistant Professor of the Practice in the Department of Statistical Science at Duke University. My research focuses on using technology and active learning techniques to enhance student learning and motivation in large undergraduate statistics courses. Prior to joining the faculty at Duke, I earned a Ph.D. in Statistics from the University of Virginia, where my research focused on using a Bayesian approach to quantify uncertainty in forensic science techniques, with an emphasis on latent fingerprint evidence.
