Assistant Teaching Professor, University of Washington

UW Box Number 354322

I am an Assistant Teaching Professor in the Department of Statistics at the University of Washington (UW). I obtained my Ph.D. in Statistics from the University of Connecticut. Prior to joining UW, I taught for several years as a Senior Lecturer at the University of Rhode Island. I currently teach large general education courses and statistical computing. I love to teach and enjoy working with students, helping them to use statistical techniques to solve and analyze real-life data, and to critically read and interpret statistical results. I am primarily focused on creating student-centered and inclusive classrooms to promote student efficacy and increase learning outcomes. I also plan to incorporate diversity in the classroom by helping to increase the number of underrepresented minorities choosing to major in the mathematical sciences. My research interests include spatial survival modeling, missing data methods, statistics education, and statistical consulting. My applied work lies broadly in the study and use of statistical methodologies and their applications to solve real-life problems in social and life sciences.
