After a BS in Mathematics @ Illinois, I completed a PhD in Statistics, also at Illinois, under the supervision of Ping Ma. I then spent four years as a Visiting Assistant Professor, then Lecturer and MS Academic Advisor for Statistics @ Illinois.
I recently spent a year as an Associated Assistant Professor and Data Analytics Program Specialist for the Department of Statistics at The Ohio State University. Go Bucks? While away from Illinois, I was an Adjunct Teaching Assistant Professor for Statistics @ Illinois where my course Statistical Modeling in R is part of the online Master of Computer Science in Data Science.
But now I have returned to spend even more time at Illinois. Yes, I have spent a lot of time at UIUC. I’m still mad we don’t use UIUC anymore. Oh well. Go Illini!
